Young archaeologists: an educational programme for children

The Archaeologist's Home begins the new academic year with an educational programme for children of 5-7 year old. Through a playful narrative, children understand the way the earth safeguards the ruins within it, as well as the secrets of people who lived and created in previous eras. The children gradually understand the logic of the stratigraphic sequences, which is so common in cities that have been inhabited for thousands of years, such as Athens. They become acquainted with the importance of the work of archaeologists: to open the ‘book of the earth’, to read through the findings, and ultimately to reconstruct the history of our city.
