Discover: Ancient Greeks

Investigate decorated pottery for evidence of what life was like in ancient Greece.

Ancient Greece has been called ‘the birthplace of Western civilization’. Its influence on our lives has lasted over 2500 years. Learn more about its legacy in this hands-on session by studying Greek objects and even the architecture of the museum itself.

  • Suitable for: Year 3 – 6
  • Duration: 1 hour
  • Group size: Up to 35 pupils – you can book more than one session

Pupils will study a range of real decorated pots from ancient Greece, handle and study fragments of Greek pottery including pieces that are over 2,000 years old and reflect on what we can learn about the life of ancient Greeks.

We have two sessions available at 10.15-11.15am and 11.15am-12.15pm. Further sessions may be available in the afternoon, so please ask.
