Presentation by Archaeologist to pupils

Presentation by Archaeologist to pupils
posted 19 Apr 2018

On Thursday 29th March, RX and RY were very lucky to have a special visitor to speak to them. Janine (who is Samuel's mum in RX) agreed to come into school to speak to the children about her job as an archaeologist. She brought her tools, including a high-visibility jacket and a hard hat. She spoke to us about how she digs trenches and hopes to find evidence of life long ago. 

We were lucky enough to be able to look in detail at some very special finds that she had brought in, including pieces of roman pot, glass bottles, fossils and tobacco pipes. The children were fascinated and loved imagining what all the items could have been used for so many years ago. After the session, the children RX used the conservation area to look for finds of their own and discovered that we have some old stone columns hidden in the undergrowth. 

Thank you very much to Janine for coming to speak to RX and RY children.
