Today we discussed how we find out about life in the past. We talked about how archaeologists can spend weeks and weeks on a site in an attempt to carefully uncover treasures from the past that will help us to know how they lived.
We had a go at our own little archaeological dig, noting down our ‘finds’ and trying to guess what they were and how old they might be! We also had a bit of a gruesome discussion about what things we thought would remain in the ground for hundreds of years, and what things wouldn’t!
Have a look at us in action:
Objects found included bones, teeth, fossils, rocks, shells, precious stones and old coins.
