7M Archaeology Day

9 September 2020 In HSIE, we learnt about the steps needed to become an archaeologist, what they do, and how they help historians. The main reason we did an archaeological dig was to get some hands-on experience about what archaeology is like. I was in the red group. My group found a whole lot of interesting artefacts, including parts of a broken clay pot, a pendant and a curtain hook. After Kyson, Ano and Toby dug up the artifacts, Kitale, Kane, Victoria and I cleaned each artefact. Then, we tried to put the clay pieces together to see what it was. Overall, it was a marvelous day and I am grateful to Miss Abascal for planning it so well. By Brenna G (Year 7)
