Presentation (1 hr 20 mins of class time required)
Dr Diane presents with images, audio and video clips of 1) how archaeologists gain an understanding about the past from only the material remains, 2) the magnificent achievements of the Maya in architecture, art, calendar, astronomy, writing and chocolate, 3) what it is like to work and live in the Maya rainforest and 4) some of the artefacts Dr Davies has discovered and how she uses them to understand more about the Maya. Throughout the presentation, Dr Diane asks children questions and gets them thinking about history.
The presentation and live Q&A sessions have been superb! We can’t wait to do more. It was just like having Diane in the room!
