Saturday Studio: Bones, Bodies and Burials

Youth event

Drop in

Saturday 19 August 2017




Come and discover the secrets of bones, bodies and burials, inspired by the human remains in our collection. You can handle a human skeleton in a session on bodies led by archaeologist Sophie Adams, learn about mummification, and try ‘Dying to take a Selfie’ - a burial photo booth with grave goods.

How to get involved

These workshops are for young people aged 14-19. There are 20 spaces in each session - first come, first served. You’ll have the best chance of getting a space if you turn up 15 minutes before the start of the session. Each session will last one hour, and you’ll be able to stay on for the following one if there isn’t a waiting list.

This event is FREE.
