In Primary Outreach we have been busy delving through the Museum’s collections to find fascinating and intriguing artefacts for our forthcoming outreach workshop that will be launched in the Autumn.
We aim to have handling artefacts to support the exhibition’s themes of play and performance, technology, belief and festivals, food and drink, and language and writing.
In the stores we were surrounded by examples of intricate craftsmanship and samples of exquisite silk. Amongst the artefacts which we may include in the workshop are an abacus, a bronze mirror and metal zodiac calendar.
