We need your help to
FILL THESE SHIELDS!
We have an amazing new project in the works that we’re really excited about. And the best part is that you can be part of it!
We’re partnering with the University of Maine’s Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center to create a life sized 3D Sculpted Knight’s Tomb! Medieval tomb effigies, like the one we’re recreating in this project, are a fascinating and engaging way to teach young students about cultural history, art history, the evolution of arms and armor, and to get them excited about learning history! It’s truly going to be an eye-opening and mind-blowing experience for schools.
We could use your help to expedite the process, though. To raise money for this ambitious and interactive project, we’re letting the first 26 History Live! Northeast supporters who donate $100 (tax deductible) to decorate the shields on the tomb’s base with their Coat of Arms* or heraldic devices. Super cool right?
On top of that, your shield will also be linked to a donors database in our 3D Altered Reality App which will bring up your shield and name when the exhibit is scanned with a smart device.
If you’re interested but don’t have your own coat of arms, no worries. Our Exhibit Designer can work with you to make something that’s both historical and representative of you. We’re also more than happy to answer any questions you have on this new project!
We’re really excited about this project and can’t wait to share more about it with you!

We know that teachers are working hard to come up with ways to continue bringing exciting new ways to learn to their students, and we want to help!
Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, many schools are no longer allowing outside groups to bring in-person presentations to classes, we are partnering with Zoom to be able to still bring live, interactive talks to your classrooms! If you would like to schedule a Zoom Presentation for your class this fall, or have questions about our presentations please send us an email at email@example.com
We can’t wait to bring history alive in your classrooms!
