Understanding the Past is a drop-in workshop for groups and families. Together you will excavate your very own dig box, uncover the objects, and piece together the hidden story. The dig boxes cover Roman, Egyptian, Anglo-Saxon and pre-historic periods. You will learn how archaeologists use context to understand the past and that sometimes the most valuable objects are not the ones you expect them to be. With research artist Jessica Elleray.
