We have a range of education loan boxes for you to borrow.


They are aimed primarily at Key Stage 2 but can be used by other age groups, SEN groups or home learners. The boxes cover a variety of topics, such as life in Roman Britain, Viking trade and craft, everyday Tudor life and exploring archaeology


From 2015 our loan boxes will cover life in Prehistoric Britain and Roman death and burial.

Each themed box will contain teacher’s notes, a variety of period-specific artefacts, replicas and games.

The Viking and Archaeology boxes contain some dressing up costumes and the Roman and Tudor boxes contain a selection of writing materials.

The boxes cost £10.00 each to borrow for the first week, followed by £5.00 for each additional week.

Boxes need to be picked up from and returned to DIG, St Saviourgate, York.

If you would like to book or view a loan box please phone our Reservations team on 01904 615505.
