Museum Education

The Hunterian has now discontinued its schools programme. We are reviewing our education strategy and information on the new offer will be published in due course.

Information for Teachers interested in visiting our display of Roman artefacts - Antonine Wall: Rome's final Frontier

  • The Hunterian has provided a Resource Pack 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.
  • 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.
  • There are scheduled tours of the display delivered by volunteer students (see Tours for more details).  However it should be noted that these tours are designed for adult visitor groups of up to 15 and may not be well suited to large class groups.


Additional Resource: "Roman Frontier Tales"

In support of dissertation research, another Museum Studies student designed a cartoon strip label depicting a short story inspired by the Roman Shoes featured in the Antonine Wall display.  this label was displayed briefly in the museum to allow visitors to comment on their reactions.  It is hoped that school children might also enjoy this short story, which can be downloaded via the link on the right.
