Skittles and Sketchfab: Ancient play at the Garstang

17:00 – 22:00

The Garstang Museum is the University of Liverpool’s archaeology museum. Founded in 1904, the collections include artefacts excavated from Egypt, Sudan and the Near East with highlights including an exceptional Nubian collection and the Egyptian mummy at the heart of the Egyptian Afterlife gallery.

Get up close to playful objects from the collection by viewing them in 3D. Made possible by state of the art scanning techniques, you can zoom in and get 360 degree views of ancient objects. Objects include a boy riding a pig, which is over 2000 years old and was possibly a baby’s rattle.
