Hands on history is a series of talks and handling workshops for adult groups. Its aim is to give adult learners and those in support groups an opportunity to look at and handle objects from the museum’s collections which are normally unseen or held behind glass.
Objects used in the talks will vary according to the needs of the group being addressed and their locality. Members of the group will have a brief introduction to the work of an archaeologist, looking at how finds are sorted and what information can be learnt from the finds. They will handle objects to try to work out what the object is, what it was used for and who might have used it.
