Our Archaeology Workshop re-imagined for grown-ups! A body has been discovered! We need your help to finish the archaeological dig and uncover the story of the person buried long ago…
In this fun and relaxed evening workshop, visitors could discover how archaeologists work, how they decipher the past and how Museums use their collections to tell these stories. With the help of our Museum Team, they excavated a body and used the objects buried with it to piece together their story, celebrate the success of the dig with wine and nibbles!
There was also a chance to take an afterhours look at the Museum’s Archaeology Temporary Exhibition and discover more about the pre-history of the local area.
“We were looking for something fun to do in London one evening that wouldn’t break the bank. We honestly had the most lovely time at the museum’s event ‘Archaeology – A Murder Mystery (Museums At Night)’ – it was fun, relaxed, super interesting and definitely something a bit different! The museum itself is quite small and quaint and the group size wasn’t too big so there was a really nice atmosphere. In addition, as well as some talks there were also some fun archaeology activities that made the evening more interactive and encouraged people to talk to each other.The wine provided was honestly so nice which was a lovely surprise, and the nibbles were great too. Finally, both Rebecca and Vicky were SO amazing, super knowledgeable and friendly and were clearly SO passionate about the Museum and what they do. They had a really nice energy which created a lovely vibe. I definitely recommend! Big thumbs up.”
