Chrishall Virtual Museum

Welcome!

Welcome to the Chrishall School Virtual Museum.

This site has been started because pupils wanted to showcase artefacts they have found in the local community,

I hope you will enjoy visiting the site to see the children's artefacts, read their artefact labels and join in their historical debate about the possible origins of their finds.

Please note all artefacts belong to the children, have been found in their own gardens or brought to the museum with full permission of the owners. All children are aware that permission from land owners must be sought before any digging takes place!

Happy Browsing!
