British Museum Economics study day

Students already studying economics or thinking about doing it at university will consider economic concepts which may appear contemporary, but have been experienced across 4,000 years.

Date: 20/03/2017
Time: 11.00am-2.30pm
Venue: The British Museum, Great Russell St, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 3DG

From debt in Roman Egypt to inflation in revolutionary France, students will consider economic concepts which may appear contemporary, but have been experienced across 4,000 years.

The day is open to KS5 and undergraduate students studying, or wishing to study, Economics. Your students will be encouraged to challenge their knowledge through topics such as inflation throughout history, lessons learnt from the fixed exchange rate in the Roman Empire, financial crises through the ages.

Handling of objects from the collection will be available during the lunch break and the study day will close with career passion pitches by various people who studied Economics.

Supported by Citi as part of the Citi Money Gallery education programme.
