On Thursday, 8th March, Year 11 and 12 Ancient History students went on a combined excursion to the Nicholson Museum at Sydney University. Year 11 went on a tour of the museum, which contains a large number of ancient artefacts. They also had the opportunity to handle objects thousands of years old (with gloves on!) in the Education Room.
Year 12 had a similar programme, however, their focus was on objects that highlight topics they are studying for their HSC, such as Pompeii and the Roman leader Augustus.
Photos show the girls in the main quadrangle at the university, handling artefacts and listening intently to the guides.
