Introducing archaeology to primary school children

Home/Blog/Introducing archaeology to primary school children

This week Sharon and Ceri Boston (former colleague) spent the morning with Year 3 children at a local primary school introducing them to archaeology. They took along a selection of finds and some human and animal bone. The children were surprisingly well-informed (the wonders of television – ‘Horrible Histories’ has a lot to answer for) and were full of enthusiasm. It always amazes how they grasp concepts some adults struggle with and the very perceptive questions they ask. Best of all was the un-prompted heart-felt thanks from one little boy.
