You’ll unlock the secrets of the British Museum’s extraordinary collection with a qualified archaeologist, getting to grips with the history of human civilisation, exploring our earliest origins in Africa, to the great empires of Egypt, Assyria, Greece and Rome.
Along the way, you'll tour the British Museum's most famous galleries, including Ancient Egypt and Assyria, Ancient Greece and Rome, the Vikings and the Aztecs, discovering world-famous artefacts such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles and the Lewis Chessmen.
