Our Year Eight Latin classes have been making Bronze Age Advent Calendars this week!
Each student was given sealed miniature envelopes which contain different artefacts from the Minoan and Mycenaean civilisation. They then stuck these envelopes to some card and numbered them.
The Year Eights have spent the past term learning all about the mysterious Minoans who lived on Crete, through their artistry and objects. They have started to learn about the more warlike Mycenaeans who took over the Minoan palaces after an enormous eruption at Santorini which destroyed the Minoan outpost on the island, as well as wiping out their navy.
Each day, the students will be able to open and explore a different ancient artefact!
