CA ON00259 RG116 · Record group · 1992

Series consists of the Elspeth M. Williams research material and thesis for her Master of Museum Studies program at the University of Toronto., titled “’Finding Cleopatra’s eyeballs’ and other archaeological pursuits: A Royal Ontario Museum study of children’s perceptions of the past.”

Williams conducted a visitor evaluation study on children’s concept of archaeology, objects as a source for understanding the past, bias inherent in material evidence and the idea of cultural change and continuity. She discovered that Canadian fifth-graders had a high level of comprehension of the relationship between material evidence and the past; they generally felt that the museum’s interpretation of the past was authoritative. The study also indicated that children can handle abstract concepts and that concept learning is enhanced by museum visits.

The research material includes survey questions, sound recordings of interviews, flash cards, and marking sheets. Transcripts of the interviews are included in an appendix of the thesis.
