Former curator of dolls and games at the V&A Museum, Caroline Goodfellow explores the history of childhood games and how they have changed from ancient times to the modern day. From ancient board games to childhood pastimes of the Middle Ages through to the street games of the 1950s and 1960s and the experience of children in the current decade, she delves into the differences in games over time and region.
