Bristol Museum

Ancient Eygptian Artefact Detectives at Bristol Museum.

Chestnut class started the year with an exciting trip to Bristol Museum. For some it was their first time in the magnificent building and there was lots of pointing at the box plane and with the patterned floor. Our aim was to experience what it might have been like to uncover treasures from Ancient Eygpt and learn how it is done. The children had a session where they had to dig for artefacts and then solve what real items were in a box and work out where it might have come from down the Nile. It was great fun and the children never lost interest.
