Our timeline ranges from early civilisation to the 1960s with special boxes for Agriculture, Fishing, Railways, Washday and the ‘Box that Must Not be Named’. Children will handle original and replica items from the past, dress in replica clothing, read from books, listen to CDs, watch DVDs and look at photographs and drawings. Activity
