With the upcoming Gateway to the Gods exhibition set to open this weekend in the County Hall Museum (25 April 2015), the team at Trendles have arranged a series of fantastic free school workshops for us all related to the Roman artefacts found at Marcham. Pupils are invited to look around the Trendles Project exhibition in the main gallery of the museum and then participate in a Roman artefact handling session downstairs in the Kempster room. Activities will be led by the Trendles education officer Emma Gowans and Trendles Project volunteers. All the artefacts the pupils will work with were found during our local excavations at Marcham/Frilford. Pupils will identify different objects and then learn how to record them like an archaeologist.

Each school session will include 45 minutes in the exhibition area and 45 minutes in the Kempster room. A typical class of 30 students will be split into two groups of 15 and would each do both sessions.
This is a rare and fantastic opportunity for local schools to discover about the Romans in the local area. Please contact the museum office on 01235 523703 or Museum.firstname.lastname@example.org, to book your school in for a session.
