Archaeology Quest – Half Term Activity

  • 25th May 2021

Over half term we are going around Worcestershire with a family Archaeology Quest, with the help of the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Come and have a go at being an archaeologist and see what you can discover!

We’ve got several challenges for you have a go at – see what you can identify and work out from the clues. And bring your questions for our archaeologist!

  • Stone or bone
  • Identify pottery
  • Coin challenge
  • Spot the difference on a map
  • What would last longest? What materials are archaeologists most likely to find surviving in the ground?

Please book in advance so we can space out families – max 6 people or 2 households per slot. Places are limited. The activities will take around 20-25 minutes, and at The Hive there will be extra things to look for in the grounds of The Hive – see how the history of the site is recorded outside.

The event will be outside. Please bring own pen/pencil if you can.

Wed 2 June 10am-1pm – Malvern Library

Thu 3 June 10am -1pm – Rubery Library

Fri 4 June 10am-1pm – The Hive, Worcester

The event has been enabled by the Support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, through their Culture Recovery Fund.
