From here the children were ready for their first dig. Nora explained that any archaeological dig requires a licence so all the paperwork had to be filled in first. The children then worked in teams with various pieces of equipment to retrieve any objects and put them in the Finds Tray. The idea is to work slowly so that you things won’t be missed. When all the objects were found the children then had to fill in the description of the objects on the Artefact Record Sheet. Children experienced the thrill of discovery in a mock up archaeological dig under the supervision of a professional archaeologist. This was a free event and was enjoyed by all!
