Ashmolean visit, 16.3.16

March 18, 2016

Year 5 spent a highly enjoyable day at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford as part of their History studies.

Our current History topic is Ancient Greece and we were guided around some of the everyday artefacts in the museum’s collection. The children were able to handle objects that were over 2,000 years old!

The children also played ‘Dog Detectives’ searched the museum for examples of dogs in the art of many different cultures.

We managed to see only a tiny part of what this museum has to offer.
