Objects allow us to see the past through human actions, rather than how people wrote about events. But objects don’t speak for themselves, and their full potential to reveal historical information is often unrealised. Using material culture analysis techniques employed by archaeologists and museum curators, this paper discusses ways of seeing everyday and museum objects and suggests how these might be employed in secondary teaching of ancient history. The discussion includes looking beyond the face value of text or pictorial information on ancient artefacts, to maximise their potential to reveal clues about the people who made them and used them. Some strategies for analysis will be presented with examples of objects relevant to syllabus topics that might apply to teaching stages 4 to 6 ancient history. A selection of archaeological and historical case study objects from the collections of small museums from Sydney and regional NSW are presented, demonstrating how objects for classroom and student project case studies can be found in collections across the state.
