The fantastic learning resources on offer from the Museum Collections & Archive team at Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust

Living in Greenwich: Tales Through Time

As we curated Living in Greenwich: Tales Through Time in late 2020, we chose some of the most interesting objects from our collection to explore the lives of people who were here before us.

We can learn from both the ordinary and extraordinary things left behind by history. In an unusual time, what we collect now will help us tell people in the future about the pandemic.

Pangolin colouring activity

Pangolins, scaly mammals similar in most ways to anteaters, are native to Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. One can be found in Royal Greenwich's natural history collection, and our former collections manager Nadia created a colouring sheet inspired by it.
