Young Archaeologists

Young archaeologist’s summer sizzler

21 young archaeologists aged between 8 and 17 enjoyed a week’s summer school (August 1st-5th), excavating in the garden of one of Souhwell’s Prebendial houses. They learnt about excavation techniques, recording and drawing. In additon they made their own Roman headpots, some mosaic tiles and used Viking cordwinders to make friendship bracelets.

Feedback from parents and young people was very positive and we all had a fun week. We started each day with some ‘silly’ games to get us in the mood. Among the finds were several pieces of Medieval pottery. There are more photos on our facebook page.
