History Detectives

Take on the role of a museum collections manager, and investigate a range of artefacts. Learn about how records are kept, and what we can learn about artefacts through careful examination. Have a go at detailed observational drawing.

This workshop is suitable for a class studying Victorians, but if you wish to focus on investigative skills, a range of artefacts from Roman to WW2 may be booked.

The workshop will focus on

  • Investigation of artefacts
  • The importance of keeping records
  • Reporting findings – speaking and listening skills
  • Observational drawings
