Young Friends Sleepover: medicine though time
Do the roaring lion pose or curl like a cat to find out how yoga first began – and how it has influenced the way we exercise today. Make a body part (ew!) and offer it at the altar of the god Asclepius in the ancient Greek galleries. Listen to stories of horrible healing from the Middle Ages, and diagnose our Renaissance victim's disgusting disease!
At the end of the evening Young Friends and their guests will spend the night sleeping in the Egyptian and Assyrian galleries surrounded by kings and gods from the ancient world. In the morning there will be breakfast and a chance to visit the BP exhibition Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia.
