School visits

Want us to visit your school?
Email us at archaeologyinthecity@sheffield.ac.uk today!

Archaeology in the City offers a range of free outreach activity sessions and workshops for students of all ages. We can explore real archaeological objects from different time periods, run craft activities, and answer lots of questions about what life is like as an professional archaeologist.

Scroll down for testimonials from previous school visits and for some resources you can use in your classroom!

“The children were totally engaged and really enjoyed your hands on approach. The maps and time line activities were age appropriate and I can’t thank you enough for giving the children the opportunity to handle artefacts”
-Mexborough Primary School (June 2015)

“It was relaxed but informative….The girls who all started with very low confidence really developed to the point of wanting to do more and even be involved with archaeology out of school hours”
-King Ecgbert School
(June 2015)

Current COVID-19 restrictions make it difficult for us to visit classrooms in-person. We are, however, happy to join you via video call or we offer a number of prepared video presentations and worksheets on a range of archaeological subjects. Click the links below to download one of our presentations and feel free to contact us with any queries!
