The Hunterian has now discontinued its schools programme. We are reviewing our education strategy and information on the new offer will be published soon.
Information for Teachers interested in visiting our display of Roman artefacts - Antonine Wall: Rome's final Frontier
- In the absence of staffed school visits, The Hunterian has provided a Teachers' Resource Pack which offers support in the delivery of your Roman topic, focusing on life at the time of the Antonine Wall.
We are very grateful to Grace Hepworth, Msc Museum Studies for compiling this pack. Grace completed this work-based project as part of her final assessment for the Hunterian Exhibition Placement 2012 (a partnership initiative between The Hunterian and the Humanities and Advanced Technology Information Institute)
- The Pack is divided into 3 sections: Pre-Visit, Visit and Post Visit activities and discussion points, allowing you to pick and mix as best suits your topic.
The links on the right allow you to download the resource pack, an alternative reduced tour, and an investigation activity sheet for groups to use in the main gallery.
- While there are scheduled tours of the display delivered by volunteer students (see Tours for more details), these tours are designed for adult visitor groups up to 15 and may not be well suited to large class groups. With prior notice, it may be possible to arrange for a slightly modified tour, but teachers of classes over 15 would be expected to assist by splitting their class into smaller groups and alternating the groups between the tour and activities in the rest of the museum. The ability to do this is dependant on the availability of suitable student guides and cannot be guaranteed.
