Hands on history
Archaeology teaches that the best way to learn about the past is to study the objects that people made and used, and the best way to study objects is to handle them. Students will be given high quality replicas of objects from the period of history they are studying, and asked to consider questions like what is it for and how was it made. They will also be asked to draw their object, giving them a chance to look closely at the details of its shape and texture.
