This week, our children have been able to experience what it would be like to be an archaeologist! The company ‘Archaeology in Mind’ dug a test pit on our school field and our children have been sieving soil to see what ancient discoveries they could make. We found pieces of pottery and even copper piping that dates back to 1750! If your child has a particular interest in archaeology, there are 3 local archaeology clubs in the West Midlands for children aged 8-16.
