We are delighted to have a range of speakers for this event including from English Heritage, Bristol Museums, and the Portable Antiquities Scheme (Gloucestershire and Avon). There will be opportunities to network and and to learn in groups.
“Archaeological collections can offer unique and positive engagement opportunities – they can bring communities together and provide innovative ways to understand our place in time.” - Gail Boyle, Bristol Museums
"Our new store at Temple Cloud is the result of lots of hard work and persuasion by those in our team, and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm about its future with other people working in the field, particularly those who may be looking for comparative material for their own regional research projects." - Cameron Moffett, English Heritage

Who should attend


People taking their first steps into (or interested in) using archeology at a tool for engagement who want to appreciate what opportunities there are and how to apply simple, cost-effective approaches
Those reacting to opportunities/demand
More experienced people looking to refresh their knowledge-base


Programme

Morning session (at Bath Guildhall)
10.00 Arrival with Tea & Coffee
10.15 Welcome
10:30 Beyond display - Unlocking the potential of small archaeological collections in museums Gail Boyle, Senior Curator (Archaeology), Bristol Museums
This session will introduce participants to multiple ways that archaeological material can be used to engage and inspire people of all ages beyond the medium of display. From archaeology ‘after school’ clubs to enquiry-based learning in the museum, Gail will demonstrate how even the smallest of archaeological collections can be used to their best effect, where to get information, advice and support, and why sometimes it’s important to realise that connecting people with these collections is often not just about the archaeology.
11.00 Portable Antiquities Scheme: Public enquiries, a Finds Liaison Officer’s experience Kurt Adams, Finds Liaison Officer, Portable Antiquities Scheme (Gloucestershire and Avon)
Archaeology is an incredibly accessible subject and anyone digging in their garden can be made to feel like and amateur archaeologist. As a result of this availability and vast array of items discovered, museums often have to deal with members of the public seeking advice on what they have found. This is an ideal opportunity for smaller museums or people with little archaeological experience to learn where to go and who to contact for help.
11.30 Break
11.45 The English Heritage Collections for the South-West: a new home; a new life Cameron Moffett, English Heritage (Temple Cloud Archaeology Collection Store)  
English Heritage curates the bulk of the archaeological and architectural collections from its sites in Guardianship. The strengths of the collection for the south-west range from prehistoric sites in Cornwall, Great Witcombe Roman Villa, the major excavations at Launceston Castle, the abbeys of Cleeve, Muchelney and Hailes, and important medieval sites such as Sherborne Old Castle, Farleigh Hungerford Castle and Gloucester’s Blackfriars. After a number of years of major stores rationalisations and moves, we now have a new, purpose-built facility at Temple Cloud, Somerset, where we are developing an engaging programme of research and repacking working with volunteers.
12.15 Archaeology: ideas, experiences and questions from the floor
12.30 Lunch
Afternoon session (at The Roman Baths)
13:30 Break out into interactive sessions (attendees can take part in both sessions)

ABOUT THE COURSE
Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them.
It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.
On the course you will:


Meet with like-minded people to explore what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.


Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.


Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.


People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.
-- Click here to see the impact of the course and what people say about it --
Each week is based around a big question:
Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.
Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.
Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.
Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.
Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.
Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.
Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.
Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR
This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others.
Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life.
Or maybe you’re passionate about creating happier communities and a happier world.
Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.
Please note: this course is not group therapy, if you are experiencing severe challenges at the moment we recommend seeking alternative professional support.

HOW IT WORKS
The course is run by keen volunteers who are stepping forward to help spread happiness in the local area.
Everyone who joins the course makes a donation of their choice to be there.
It costs Action for Happiness about £90 per person to support each course so we ask all participants to give whatever they can to support themselves and others.
You can give as Supporter (£120) or give the Standard (£90) if you are able, otherwise please give whatever donation works for you - even if you can only give £5 right now you’re as welcome as anyone else :)


What are the highlights of the course?

“More or less everything is a highlight as it is mightily well researched and factual.” ~ Annick, Lindfield
“Being able to believe that I could be brave enough to change my circumstances/life, in order to be happier/make others happier around me.” ~ Michelle, Farnborough
