What's On at Torquay Museum

Young Archaeologists Club - Poo From the Past!

Date: 21 July 2018

The next meeting will be on Saturday 21st July from 2 - 4pm. Sessions will be jam packed with activities to give you an idea of what it is really like to work in a museum. This month we will be looking at: 

Poo from the Past

Poos are called ‘coprolites’ by archaeologists. Coprolites can include loads of evidence to help us understand what people ate in the past, and how they prepared their food.

Try our activities including making historical poo and excavating them!

Cost £3 per child

Torbay YAC is open to everyone aged 8–16 years. YAC clubs are part of the Council for British Archaeology and get involved in all sorts of activities, including visiting and investigating archaeological sites and historic places, trying out traditional crafts, taking part in excavations, and lots more.

Meetings will now be on every 3rd Saturday of the month and will mostly be held at Torquay Museum. We hope that they will be fun interactive sessions which will give you insights into different aspects of archaeology and beyond.

New members always welcome! email: for more information.
