"I really appreciated the preparation that clearly went into the videoconference. The students received an interesting insight into the ancient world and the docents' enthusiasm for ancient artifacts and history was quite inspiring for my class to see!" -E. Brazier, Abbotsleigh School, New South Wales, Australia
