Digging up the past

Saturday 24 November 2018

This week, we became archaeologists for the day and excavated some interesting artefacts. We spoke about how we know a lot about the past from objects that have been found and they can tell us a lot about how people lived and what their daily lives were like.

So that we didn’t break or damage the artefacts, we had to use brushes to delicately unearth  the objects. We also used a co-ordinate grid system to record where each artefact was found.  The artefacts were a little strange, so we had to use our detective skills to figure out what they were what they were possibly used for.
