Archaeology family fun day at Armagh County Museum
Published: 07 July 2011
A family fun packed day of activities took place at Armagh County Museum on Saturday 11th June.
This annual event was aimed at making archaeology both fun and informative and to highlight the important role archaeology plays in interpreting the past.
Over 100 people visited the Museum and were given the chance to make clay pots, try their hand at quill writing, paper weaving and explore Museums trails. There was also an opportunity to solve Runic puzzles and make Viking shields.
Visitors were able to look at the Tynan Hoard, a collection of Viking silver found at Tynan Abbey as well as Stone Age pots and axes.
Talks on the collections from our resident archaeologist Greer Ramsey were also given and everyone had the opportunity to handle objects that were thousands of years old!
