for visiting our web site. Over the years, I know we
are now, without doubt, the only company in the UK offering
such a huge & diverse range of history, religious
and art-based artefacts specifically for use in the
classroom. We are particularly excited about our range
of history artefacts which we are adding to week by
week. We can provide you with genuine affordable artefacts
which are often special, sometimes amazing, sometimes
unique, but most importantly will stimulate your students
& impact your classroom. So far, over 8,000 schools
have used our service, so hopefully, we're doing something
right! Welcome to Starbeck Educational Resources. Have
