Pop into the museum this Sunday 26th June, to get ‘hands-on’ with heritage.
Find out how the Iron Age Celts lived through their everday obejcts through this unique interatctive workshop!
Throughout the day there will be drop-in sessions, held in the resources room, where you will have the opportunity to handle some authentic and replica everyday items as used by the Iron Age people of Danebury hillfort.
The sessions are approximately 50 minutes long, and are aimed at families with children aged 5-12, but everyone is welcome whether you are a parent or carer with a young child, or if you are 80 years young and fancy a more interactive take on the past!
Sessions at: 11:00hrs, 13:00hrs, 14:00hrs, and, 15:00hrs but you are welcome to pop in anytime throughout the day.
After the sessions, visitors are encouraged to look for copies of these objects handled, within the museum displays, in the form of a ‘treasure hunt’. This will be given out at the end of the session and there will be a prize for the winner.
*Please note that children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
*These sessions are run by a postgraduate student as part of their dissertation in the MA Cultural Heritage and Resource Management, at the University of Winchester. There will be a short, anonymous questionnaire provided at the end of the session, which can be filled out if visitors wish to do so. Any information visitors provide in these questionnaires is confidential and will only be used anonymously within the student’s dissertation. Any feedback is much appreciated.
