King Ecgbert School (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.”
