Home Educators

We run two home education days every year here in Stratford-upon-Avon

Join us for our upcoming home education day on Friday 3 February 2017 featuring bespoke and interactive session at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Friday 3 February 2017

A Time and Place

Suitable for ages 7 to 14

10.00am until 12.00pm

The Shakespeare Centre, Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6QW

At the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust we hold a rich collections of artefacts that vividly bring the Roman and Saxon periods of history to life. Come and learn about settlement, burial pits, clothing, food, money and how people used to live. Primary evidence is examined during the session to improve understanding and interpretation of the past.

Drawing on their own knowledge those attending will:

  • Become both an archaeologist and a history detective
  • Discover, identify and examine the amazing Roman and Saxon finds in our Collections
  • Solve the mystery of the grave goods and piece together the story behind the finds
  • Connect artefact and events in history using an interactive timeline
  • Unearth artefacts in our dig boxes
  • Take part in the 'Rot or Not' challenge
  • Visit the strong room where original artefacts are held

Cost: £7.50 per child including any materials used and a free visit to Shakespeare's Birthplace.*
