One of the aims of the Archaeology of Childhood Project is to increase collaboration with local archaeology units, museums, community groups, archaeology/history societies, etc. as we work together to investigate and display the history of childhood and children in our region. To this end, we are pleased to announce the first Consultation Panel, which will be held at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology on Monday, 6 July at 6.30pm.
We are keen to hear from interested individuals and groups about what themes they would like to see addressed, any local finds, stories or objects they know of, etc. The team will present on our progress so far and discuss some of the objects we have identified in our collections. The session will last approximately 1 hour and tea and cake will be provided.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot attend but have ideas, please send them along! We will be having two more Consultation Panels later in the year, and will advertise those accordingly.
