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 investigate the Indus Civilisation which flourished around five thousand years ago in part of modern Pakistan, India and in a small part of Afghanistan. Their curiosity will be inspired as they explore the objects of the ancient civilisation. They will find out that not everything has been revealed and there remains much for future experts to discover, including the undeciphered Indus script.

Ages: 7–11 (KS2)
