“A big thank you for your talk today. The children were totally engaged and really enjoyed your hands on approach. The maps and time line activities were age appropriate and I can’t thank you enough for giving the children the opportunity to handle artefacts. We hope you can come and give another presentation with next year’s students! Once again it was great to meet you and THANKYOU once again for everything.”

Primary School teacher, Mexborough (Year 4 Class) Archaeology in the City volunteer visit to the classroom, June 2015

“It was successful on so many levels. The way it was presented and carried out meant that it was relaxed but informative. The kids had their confidence built up in a gentle and positive way, it was a delight to see. The boys all showed their different strengths and played to them, they were aware of each other’s roles and were enabled to work effectively well as a team. The girls who all started with very low confidence (“miss, I am out of my depth here”) really developed to the point of wanting to do more and even be involved with archaeology out of school hours. I’m really looking forward to keeping up the contact, by working with Courtenay and visiting the department in September.”
