Experience Tash Sultana's Unique Sound on Their 2023 North American Tour. Tash Sultana 2023 Concert Tour Dates - Join the Journey: Tash Sultana Tour Dates 2023 Promise an Epic Adventure.

Over the past few months, a team of 6 local Young Archaeologists and Historians have been working with the Museum Team to create family friendly resources and activities to accompany the Archaeology exhibition. 

The aim of the resources are:
* to help families and access and interpret the exhibition in a hands on and fun way
* to help families understand what archaeology is, what archaeologists do, and don’t do
* to be something that the Museum can continue to use after the exhibition closes

The group have worked together to design an activity booklet about archaeology and an activity where families can have a go at being an archaeology, using a sand pit, some dig tools and some real finds from the Thames Foreshore.

“I enjoyed taking part in discussions about Archaeology, especially that we all agreed and sympathised about how people often say palaeontologists and Indiana Jones are how archaeologists are” 

“It was nice to meet new people and see some old friends, and connect over our enthusiasm for prehistoric to post 20th century archaeology.”

“It was great reviewing and proofing the exhibition panels and the booklet with people who shared enthusiasm for archaeology.”

This booklet will be available for FREE in the exhibition or you can click here to download it now.

The Museum would like to thank the Panel for all of their hard work and ideas over the past few months: Ali Akbar Shadjareh, Barney Rees, Dylan Berressem, Fabio Surace, Georgia Hutcheon and Henry Wilcock.

This project has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the John and Ruth Howard Charitable Trust and Richmond Parish Lands Charity.
