What is the postcards from the past competition?
BBC History Revealed magazine is asking children aged 6–13 to choose a historical figure and write a short postcard from the perspective of that person, imagining that they are stuck in a historical lockdown.
We’re posting a selection of entries on this page throughout the competition – so keep checking back to see if you’ve been featured!
We’ll also share examples on our social media channels: Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. If you’d like to share your creation on social media yourself, make sure you include the hashtag #pastpostcards so we can see it!
The closing date for the competition is 1 July 2020
After that date, a panel of judges will choose 10 winners whose creations will be published in a future issue of BBC History Revealed.
