Information on Virtual Outreach Prize

Your students can spend 45 minutes discovering what life was like in the Viking Age or the Tudor period. View a variety of artefacts, hear tales of daily life and put your own prepared questions to our Viking settler or Tudor townsperson.

You can also talk with one of our archaeologists if you want to learn more about what an archaeologist does and how finds can be used to study the past, including a new session, Prehistory Revealed!, where our archaeologists will take you through some of the most exciting discoveries from Prehistoric Britain.

Skype is our platform for Virtual Outreach – We recommend that you check with your IT support team to find out if your local authority blocks the use of this software. In order to book a session, we will need to know your Skype ID. When making your booking, you will also need to book a test session (normally late afternoon Wednesday-Thursday at least two weeks prior to the date of your virtual outreach session) and will need to provide a mobile contact number.
