“[Guides were] very enthusiastic. Personable, knowledgeable and able to relate to teenagers.”

"The program was fantastic...Craig was fantastic and imparted his knowledge to my students in a way that inspired."
“Fran’s approach established rapport with the students; she presented excellent information in a manner suited to the age group.”
“Students enjoyed the archaeological talk and hands-on activities.”
“The girls all found the sessions in the Museum and Education Room to be well worthwhile, and appreciated the chance to participate, rather than be passive observers. In fact, one of the girls expressed an interest in pursuing archaeology as a subject at university as a result of her experiences on the day.”
“Craig was a wonderful guide. As it was a Latin class Craig focused on language, which was much appreciated…The hands-on investigation of the Pompeii artefacts was terrific.”
“The artefacts we looked at were interesting and the girls enjoyed that part of the day the most. The tour of the University to look at the Latin inscriptions was good.”
And from the students...
“My classmates and I not only added to our historical knowledge and archaeological skills, but enjoyed ourselves too.”
“It is very interesting to learn about how historical artefacts are valued and regarded at different points in time. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and assistance.”
“I learned so much.”
“Hands-on artefacts were absolutely superb.”
“We couldn’t have had better guides.”
