Secondary School Workshop (7-8 History)


HOW TO DISCOVER DAILY LIFE IN ANCIENT GREECE

In this workshop students will learn about the features and activities of daily life in ancient Greece. By looking at the Hellenic Museum’s collections spanning 8,000 plus years of history, students will learn how archaeologists and historians find and investigate artefacts to discover how people lived in the past. Students will work in groups to find evidence in pictures, paintings, pottery, statues, jewellery and other objects to support or disprove a series of statements about different areas of life in ancient Greece such as; food and agriculture, trade and intercultural connections, women and children’s lives, death and rituals, warfare, politics, technology and mythology. The workshop will develop students’ abilities to identify the origin and content features of primary sources and describe perspectives and experiences of people from the past.
