Archaeologists' work is key to much of what we display at the Museum and much of what we know about communities in the past. This programme puts learners into the position of an archaeologist to examine museum objects and replicas from a range of different civilisations while exercising their curiosity, knowledge and problem-solving abilities.
· Understand the role of an archaeologist and why the study of material remains is important and relevant
· Make comparisons between life now and in the past
· Gain an understanding around the values and beliefs, communication and technology of Ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Inca and Aztec civilisations
