This practical guide presents both ideas and case studies for any practitioners involved in educational work with archaeology and the historic environment. The chapters provide an invaluable overview of the primary considerations and opportunities facing those setting up or developing activities for children. The subjects range across – the rationale for increased archaeological involvement in education, the National Curriculum and its requirements, key steps in developing successful educational programmes, suggestions about practical organisation and planning, the provision of resource materials, and some hints on issues of funding and supporting education work The combination of ‘how to’ guide and broader discussion of the role of archaeology in education makes this an essential volume for education officers in archaeological and heritage organisations.
