Introduction for students:
The following guide will give you some ideas for investigating museum objects and using them for an historical enquiry. It will help you think like historians and archaeologists, who use clues to find out about people in the past. It is a step-by-step guide, but you do not have to answer all the questions or even follow all the steps in order. You might have your own ideas about how to find clues and use them to find out about the past.
It's good to leave some feedback.
