Class LH and Class SC uncover some hidden gems!

Class LH and Class SC experienced what it is like to be an archaeologist and how we can use evidence gathered to find out about the past.  
Carefully, everyone located and uncovered an artefact which was then brushed and cleaned to reveal the finding in its full glory.  These were then recorded with the measurements, description and location of the artefact using coordinates.  
Some of the children thought that some were earrings to start with but once everyone had found their artefact, we then looked at the range of evidence available to us and decided they could be necklaces once they were pieced together.  We were able to reconstruct some pots and necklaces which had been broken too.
