The Bronze Age: Half Term Workshops for Children 20 October 2010
Do you dig Time Team? If you do, come and find out what you can uncover about life in the Bronze Age. This half-term Manx National Heritage are hosting childrens workshops with archaeology themed activities to discover more about the exhibition Bronze: Alchemy of Mann 1000BC, a new display at the Manx Museum.
The workshops are a great opportunity for children to get a real insight into this fascinating exhibition while learning about life on the Isle of Man in the Bronze Age.
Anthea Young, Education Officer at Manx National Heritage said: Only archaeology can help us understand what life was like in the Bronze Age, because it wasnt until one thousand years after the man found at Ronaldsway died that the first written records were made of life in the Isle of Man.
Learn about the recent discoveries from the findings at Ronaldsway, while trying your hand at decorating a copper disc and pottery vessels using Bronze Age designs with metalworking techniques.
Workshops are at the Manx Museum from Monday 25th to Friday 29th October. There are two sessions a day running from 10.30am-12.00 noon or 1.30pm to 3.00pm. Tickets are £5 per child, available from the Manx Museum and online at www.manxheritageshop.com.
