News from the Middle East


The exhibition is a journey of discovery for children and is set in an archaeological excavation, a busy tea house and a school in the Middle East. In play and by conducting their own investigations, children learn about the gripping history and the archaeological richness of the region. This offers a very different picture of the Middle East than the news about turmoil and war which we regularly see on television, the internet and in the newspapers. The children finish their visit by making their own newspaper about the Middle East they have learnt about in the exhibition.
