Educational SCHOOL WORKSHOPS and Loans Boxes

 We work with original local archive material, photographs, maps, census forms and oral history. We have a handling collection with some period clothes.

'Lots of great, interactive objects and artifacts. The children were engaged and interested. It opened their eyes regarding the lives of ordinary Romans. The lavender bag making was right up their street! Thanks for a great session.'  Culverhill school Yate.
