"Palpating the ancient times"
The reopening of this program is among the priorities of the Lighthouse for the Blind of Greece. The programme was running before the earthquake of 1999. The participants were blind, partially and fully sighted children aged 11-15 years old. An instructor was giving sighted children masks and canes and they were showed how to move and how to explore sculptures by touch, sensitising them about blindness issues.
Then, an archaeologist showed them how the excavations are made, using a large box with soil where an object was hidden. After finding it, they were shown how to cast copies of the original.
