Destination Devizes!

This month we met up with members of Young WANHS (Wiltshire Archaeology and Natural History Society) at Devizes Museum.

Ali, their Leader, had arranged some really great things for us to do.

First we explored the amazing Bronze Age collection, mostly from the area around Stonehenge, then we had a go at making copies of some of the finds.

We used soft wire to make bracelets

Then we made small clay pots like the incense burners we had seen on display.

Some of us did accurate drawings of some Bronze Age tools.

And we made our own gold lozenges, like the one from Bush Barrow, by engraving on to gold foil.

We all had a really good time, and are very grateful to Ali and her group for giving us such a great morning at Devizes Museum.
