“This was an excellent opportunity for the Young Archaeologists’ Club to use the lab equipment, the activities were really interesting, pitched at the right level and they learned a lot about using a microscope (not an easy task for some!) and searching for information…and how this related to the environment generally and particularly in the case of human remains.”

“What an amazing time we had! Firstly we had our very own guide of the site and activities… We all enjoyed having a go at making small pots with clay… and saw demonstrations of metalworking. We looked at animal and human bones, had fun sealing an experimental Q-Pit with mud and making our own charcoal, and enjoyed the medieval music and singing . We were given a piece of iron ore from the experimental forge and we’ll use it in our next visit to Wincobank Hill Fort in June”
