These three new galleries – Discovery Archaeology, Egyptian Worlds and Exploring Objects – will become the focus for some of our brand new workshops, in addition to being included into some of students’ favourite sessions from our usual offer. To give you a taster, here are how some of our Key Stage Three sessions will utilise the galleries…
In our ArteFACT session students will now be able to explore the Discovering Archaeology gallery to learn how objects can teach us about the past as well as investigating collections in Exploring Objects to write alternative labels for archological finds.
In Citizen of the City students will use the gallery to inform them on their roles in Ancient Athens and how we know about these people through archaeology.
Whereas, in Natural Reflections - where students answer ‘big’ questions, including one on human remains – they can view a variety of remains on display showing different types of display and information we can learn from these, sometimes contentious, objects.
