We can accommodate a maximum of 30 in any one session. Sessions usually last for approximately an hour. We offer gallery worksheets to support all of our sessions. These can be found on the resources page.
Myths from Classical Greece and Rome (KS1)

Investigate the Anglo-Saxons (Upper KS2/3)
Using local evidence from Butler’s Field, children will examine archaeological evidence from burial goods left behind by the Anglo-Saxons. Pupils also find out what we learn from human remains bringing scientific enquiry into play. Using primary evidence and high quality replicas, this session reinforces archaeological enquiry. Some dressing up also takes place.
Roman Houses (Upper KS2/3)
Using local archaeology, pupils will handle real Roman building materials and examine plans of houses from Roman Corinium (Cirencester.) They will develop their analytical skills and explore objects to determine who might have lived in the houses, bringing building and object evidence together in their conclusion.
