BRONZE AGE HANDLING BOX
Take a step back in time
The Bronze Age Handling Box Project arose an ambition at the National Museum of Ireland to enable young people to learn about the past through the study and handling of objects.
It enables young people to work as historians and archaeologists and encourages them to engage with the past in a thought-provoking and fun way. Using an enquiry-based approach, it provides opportunities to develop literacy, language and problem solving skills and appeals to a range of learning styles and ability levels.
The Boxes are available for loan to schools on a rotational basis for a period of up to two weeks subject to availability.
The centre has a twenty piece Samba Drum set available to schools on a rotational basis for up to six weeks. There is a fee of €40 per set hire.
