Stories of Glass in Sunderland

Available all year round

Over the years many historical artefacts have been brought to the National Glass Centre for safekeeping and now the archaeologists need help identifying them! In this interactive session, pupils take the role of trainee archaeologists and through a series of challenges and dramatic interventions they will discover the history of glass making in Sunderland from Benedict Biscop to the present day. Using real objects from our handling collection pupils will learn how to use objects as evidence, develop historical enquiry and interpretation skills and further their understanding of chronology.
