a good selection of the more popular artefacts for each

have a larger selection. Both boxes offer great value for
money & are ideal for teachers where time is at a premium.

be held through the day or after school. We will exhibit
our fabulous products in your hall or classroom and you

out and the tea and biscuits in. So the more people you
invite - colleagues from neighbouring schools, pyramid or

we also sell to private individuals, retailers, museum shops,
