Connect your class to the British Museum for a free live interactive workshop.

Book this workshop and your students will be taught remotely by an expert from the British Museum. Through live activities, interactive quizzes and thought-provoking questions your class will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the past. The expert will help them develop their historical enquiry skills and challenge them to think critically.

Students will become British Museum Myth-busters. This new job requires historic enquiry skills, the ability to sift arguments and creative flair. Investigating objects from the collection and weighing up the evidence, they will develop their own perspective and judgements about ancient Egypt’s common misconceptions.
