Bring one of the following:
A promise to pass on what you learned to one other person
A question
An 'archeological' finding of your own! (you can take it away again afterwards)
One bottle of local craft beer!

About the teacher, Gavin Whitelaw

I'm an archaeologist working at the KwaZulu-Natal Museum with an interest in archaeology, history and material culture of southern Africa. My research focus is on the 'Iron Age', which is a short-hand archaeological term for the archaeology of African farmers of the last 2000 years.
