Archaeologist Activities

We’ve been having a think about how archaeologists are able to tell us things about the past. We thought about what would happen to different materials over time and realised that materials like wood and thatch would rot away but that they would leave a mark in the earth where it had once been. We made our own imprints in clay, left them to dry and covered them in sand. We then took turns at being archaeologists and excavated the sites to see if we could find the wooden post imprints. We really enjoyed this activity.
