Artefact to Art, the competition for creative kids, is back!

'Crown of Laurels' by Tom

Are you a creative under-18 year old who loves archaeology or ancient history? Do you know one? Then send in an entry for Artefact to Art, the School of Archaeology & Ancient History's competition for creative kids which is back for a second exciting year!

Simply find an object from antiquity that inspires you and create a poem, artwork, or short story inspired by that object. Our theme this year is Roman Britain, building on the publication this year of the textbook and classroom resources Life in the Roman World: Roman Leicester. Poems should be no more than 100 lines, and can include recorded spoken word or rap performances. Short stories should be no more than 1,000 words long.

Winning entries will be chosen in different age categories: Under 11, 11-14, and 15-18. Selected entries will be exhibited at the joint CA-FIEC conference (Classical Association - Fédération Internationale des associations d’études classiques) on 6-8 July 2019 in London.

For more information and details on how to enter, see the competition web page here and don't forgot to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see some of the entries so far.
