Class 3 were up early today, to catch the train to York. During the morning they visited The Dig and learnt how archaeologists interpret artefacts such as bones, pottery and human waste. They had a chance to ‘dig’ for themselves, unearthing clues for different time periods. A bespoke workshop before lunch allowed the pupils to handle artefacts. They discovered medicines, clothing and weapons the Vikings used and owned. A short walk past the Shambles, led the class to Jorvik. Here they immersed themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of York 1,000 years ago.
