Description

These two photographs show one of three activity packs aimed at children which were available at the Extraordinary Stories from the British Museum exhibition held at the Western Australian Museum – Perth. The exhibition included various items from the British Museum, including three medieval pieces, all of which featured in the activity pack. The items in question were the Queen chess piece from the twelfth-century Lewis Island chess set, the Asante ewer associated with Richard II, the King of England in the late fourteenth century, and the mid-seventh-century silver bowl from the first Cyprus treasure. The activity pack encouraged children to cut out pictures of the items and place them correctly along a timeline.
