The event is held at the British Museum‘s Education Clore Centre.

Lecturers from universities across Britain provide interactive workshops on biological and social anthropology. Students are able to learn about the various specialisations of participating universities, explore the museum’s ethnographic galleries and interact with volunteers who are currently studying anthropology.

The event is free and open to Year 12, 13 and FE Students, Careers Advisers, teachers, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anthropology.
