Ancient writings are effectively codes that we have been trying to 'break' for hundreds of years. Dr Pippa Steele, director of the CREWS Project (Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems), explains how we decipher ancient inscriptions and shows you how to write your own secret messages in ancient scripts.


Free. For children aged 7-11. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
