Life in the Bronze Age

This workshop encourages pupils to thematically explore the objects and practices of Ireland’s Bronze Age people. It enables them to investigate and use as evidence the Bronze Age collections on display in the Hunt Museum. The handling of replica prehistoric artefacts will provide additional opportunities for inquiry-led learning. Pupils also get to try out some simple prehistoric technologies. This workshop walks the students through the prehistoric timeline as they learn how technologies emerged and advanced from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age.

This 20 minute video workshop introduces Primary School students to animal based collections at the Hunt Museum.

Students will be introduced to the online research tools that will help them complete the Animal Hunt 3D online activity.


800 Years of Fashion Workshop

€3.50 euro per student. Teachers go free! 

In this workshop, students will learn about clothing from eight different periods (between 1200 and 1920), and these societies.
