Londons museums contain millions of precious objects from around the world but how many of them tell the story of London? This course will pick out 100 objects from London museums and archives like the oldest representation of a human figure found in London over 4000 years old, silver plates made by Huguenot migrants in the 18th century and postcards bought on Empire Windrush by people coming to London in 1948 that all have a story to tell.
The course will visit 10 London Museums over 10 weeks looking at 10 objects in each museum. After learning about the objects, students will take part in a debate and discussion in the café.
Each week students will visit a museum.
There will be informal assessments.
This is open to all.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
