Today a large group of first year BSL and Deaf Studies students at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) attended the British Deaf History Museum in Warrington.
The group were met by Deaf Historian Peter Jackson, who commenced by giving a brief explanation of the British Deaf History Society and the British Deaf History Museum. He also talked about some of the exhibits in greater detail.
Peter showed the group an original manuscript penned by a Deaf gentleman in 1672 and other artefacts which had been recovered from Deaf schools, clubs, and churches over the years.
The group were amazed by some of the examples of early communication aids, e.g., flashing alarm lights, hearing aids, text telephones and other assistive technology used by Deaf people. The equipment clearly demonstrated how far technology has advanced in a short time.
In addition, the students were also able to buy books, make contributions, become members of the BDHS and explore work placement opportunities. The Deaf Museum trip was extremely interesting and informative; the students very much enjoyed their visit.
Many thanks to Peter and staff at British Deaf History Museum.
