An introduction to classical collections

This workshop has been postponed.

Discover Bristol Museum’s amazing collections from the ancient Greek, Roman and the Mediterranean worlds.

Get up close and personal with some incredible objects, find out how they were used and made before finding out about their discovery and the collectors who acquired them.

Led by museum staff with an opportunity to handle real archaeological objects and study objects not usually on display.

Archaeological study days

Bristol Museums has run a programme of study days since 2013 and an archaeological field school since 2019. Profits from study days and the field school help support the work of Bristol Museums.

Study Days are based at Bristol Museum, Blaise Museum or M Shed. Each session focuses on a different aspect of archaeology and is led by an expert in their field. Depending on the subject, the day usually involves a mix of illustrated presentations, practical activities, behind the scenes tours and/or a chance to study collections not usually on display.

All sessions are suitable for complete beginners to those who have studied archaeology before but are keen to find out more. They are open to everyone aged 16 and over.

The study day programme and field schools are directed by Kate Iles, Curator of Archaeology. For more information or to join our mailing list please contact [email protected].
