SHARE with schools visit to the history Department
On Friday 10th March, the team from SHARES with Schools (Cardiff University) visited the history department to deliver sessions to Year 7 classes.
The sessions were about archaeological science, which enhanced the understanding that the pupils have had through our looking at pre-history and archaeology as part of the new Curriculum for Wales. Using DNA, strontium, carbon and other scientific methods, the pupils were asked to identify a burial. These ranged from the Amesbury Archer (Bronze Age) to a Tudor bowman from the Mary Rose.
The pupils also enjoyed looking at artefacts like a quern stone and animal bones. It really was a good day, with the pupils enjoying learning and asking lots of questions.
Thank you to the SHARE with Schools team.
