These worksheets were used to facilitate activities where children wrote their name in Etruscan and drew their own Tessera Hospitalis outline (which were later used as part of the Tessera Hospitalis sculpture). For examples of work produced by school pupils using these resources see the relevant sections of ‘School Workshops - Works Produced by Pupils’, and for images of pupils undertaking these activities the relevant sections of ‘School Workshops – Photos’ (links provided above). These materials were used during the school workshops conducted by the AHRC-funded 'Future Memory in Place' project. This project united visual art and ancient history through contemporary landscape painting and research on migration in the ancient world, archaeology, manuscripts, objects, journeys, uncharted maps and music. It was enacted through school workshops and community gatherings around Swansea, and gave over 2,500 school pupils the opportunity to learn about how people relate to the place where they live or have lived, and how memories and the experience of migration can be expressed in art.
