IN THE MUSEUM

A.J. Ryan

Abstract


The Museum of Classical Archaeology has on loan from Dr. David Spurrett four arrowheads of varying antiquity, ranging from the late Neolithic to the Hellenistic period. Although small, these artefacts are of significant pedagogical value to a museum whose primary function is teaching. In particular, the Classics Programme at the University of Natal allows senior students, in lieu of a research essay, to submit web projects based on the artefacts in the museum.1 Ancient weaponry and warfare has always been a popular topic for students and these items offer considerable scope for new projects.
