As part of a topic on ‘The Vikings’ P3 and P2-3 had a visit on Wednesday 2.11.11 from Archaeology Scotland. The workshop run by Ruth Bordoli comprised a series of activities that illuminated different aspects of Viking life. It looked at how archaeologists use burial sites to find out about Viking culture. It also looked at how Vikings communicated with written language through the use of Runes. It’s emphasis was hands on participation for the children who thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The children enjoyed the simulated dig, sorting out and classifying their finds and making a clay pendant with their initials written in Runes,decoding Rune messages and learning about objects and artefacts that were used by the Vikings. Below are some photos of a fantastic day! Thank you to all those involved who made this day so memorable!
