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.

Stonehenge is the world’s most famous stone circle. Built by prehistoric people thousands of years ago, it has become an enduring mystery for the modern world. Who built it? When, how and why? Learners will have the opportunity to explore these ancient mysteries and modern discoveries.
