This week, year 4 had a visit from a real-life archaeologist. Children were fascinated as she talked about her experiences in this role. Armed with a wide range of prepared questions, children took notes and quizzed our visitor about all aspects of archaeology. Children found out about what happens on a ‘dig’, how sites are chosen, what tools are used and how artefacts are studied to find out more about the past. It was an incredibly interesting afternoon which left many children, quite literally, wanting to become archaeologists!
