A collection of ancient Irish equipment laid out on a table in front of a crannóg

During this workshop, students will use their senses to analyse and evaluate various replica objects. This will enable them to construct historical narratives, and interpret what life was like in the Stone Age and Bronze Age.

They will also take a tour of the prehistoric objects in the Hunt Museum’s Permanent Collection.
