There was so much to look at, we could see it was difficult to choose what to concentrate upon. Anya liked learning about the cuneiform writing, and Claire's activity of carving letters onto "clay". Thea agreed that learning about the writing was the highlight, and got a lot out of comparing the different types of ancient writing. Claire did a good job of putting what we saw into a historical context. So interesting that some cultures returned to symbolic writing (pictograms), after they seemed to 'progress' to cuneiform. We appreciated the work she put into the learning packet, and we got a lot of mileage out of your company's great notebooks too! I don't think that Claire was used to giving talks to Thea's age-group, but that's not to say it was limiting. Claire's knowledge base is incredible, and I am sure if she has an interest in broadening her scope to leading tours to that age group, she'll increasingly teach with that in mind. We really enjoyed the tour! Thank you for a terrific morning.
