Discover what life was like for people in Pre-Christian Ireland through interactive group activities, a tour of our Collection, handling of replica objects and new innovative digital interactives.
Focusing on the Stone Age and Bronze Age, students will build their visual literacy as they learn about the materials, production methods and decoration techniques used to make everyday tools and objects in prehistoric times.
During this workshop, students will use visual thinking strategies to examine and compare settlements from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age to determine how lifestyles improved in conjunction to the development of new materials and technologies. They will use digital interactives to investigate archeological objects from our Collection and participate in group art activities.
This workshop will support students to complete written questions in content area 2; Ireland and its place in the wider world; Pre-Christian section of the Leaving Certificate Examinations.
