S1 pupils have been studying archaeology – so it was really great when Sarah Cowie, the Museums officer, came into the department. She spoke to the classes about what archaeology involves and then the class were able to do an ‘Indiana Jones’ and handle artifacts from the Stone Age. Pupils had to work out what these artifacts were and their uses.
At the end of the session pupils stated how much they had enjoyed the session and how much they had learnt. everyone enjoys when Sarah visits as she helps to make history good fun !
