Childhood in Antiquity

This course conveys an impression of childhood in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. The everyday life of a child 5000 years ago is shown by means of objects from the museum. In addition, various ancient board games will be tried out: how does the Egyptian version of “Ludo” or the Roman version of “Backgammon” work? Apart from that, participants can also prove their skills in the “Little Nut Game” (Nüsschen-Spiel).
