Schools and colleges
Schools and colleges have enjoyed a range of activities based on the Seaton Down Hoard. Roadshows and conservation activities started in October 2016 and continued until August 2017. They were hugely popular. The Seaton Down Hoard Roadshow visited 47 schools and worked with 4350 pupils during the year.
A level students were able to do conservation workshops and contribute their time by volunteering for the project. More than 40 students helped us clean coins.
A huge thanks to all who took part.
For more detail on activities see below:
Children in KS2 made a Roman coin, found out about the discovery of the hoard and explored Roman Devon. The workshop also included a game to compare Roman Devon with East Devon today. In addition children had the chance to handle real Roman coins from the Seaton Down Hoard.
Young people in KS3, KS4 and KS5 found out about conservation and examined the hoard as a primary source. Students explored primary and secondary sources as well as discover evidence of Romans in East Devon through the hoard.
