Petrie Museum workshops coming soon!

Don’t miss out on the chance to handle and experience museum objects in a new way at our workshops in the Petrie Museum in London on 18 and 25 April.

You’ll meet objects like this ceramic oil lamp that provided light in the home of ancient Egyptians living at the opposite end of the Roman empire from Britain. It’s a simple object, but certainly not ordinary – and it was a constant part of some family’s life. What memories would they have had when they lit it each evening? What memories does it evoke in us today? Come and tell us what you think – just let us know which workshop you would like to come to.

See our Workshops page for more information.
