This term we have been studying the Ancient Maya civilization. Supporting our curiosity we ventured out to the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford on Tuesday 27th June. Before we set off on our exploit, we were separated into 9 groups. Stunned as we entered the sensational building a simple format was laid out as we departed into two groups. With ease we dropped our luggage off and began our march. The first of the two groups were intrigued to examine the objects of the Mayan culture. This led us into designing our own Maya headdresses.
After devouring a healthy packed lunch on the gorgeous grounds we made our way back into the Victorian building to begin our historical trail (our second workshop). Returning to our groups, we picked up our trusty clip board and pencil. The tail had begun! As we strolled along the darkened passages spectating at the decrepit artefacts, we searched for many different antiques and objects. As our final task, we were let free into the museum to find items from A-Z. It was a great day!
