Yr 11 Ancient History

Year 11 Ancient History students are currently learning about excavating historical sites and  preserving archaeological sources found in our world. To demonstrate this, students were tasked with excavating their own ‘site’ in the form of a cookie to find valuable chocolate chip ‘artefacts’. 

Students faced challenges real archaeologists do, such as excavating the ‘artefacts’ without destroying them and also attempting to best preserve the ‘site’ afterwards. But the real challenge proved to be resisting the temptation to eat the cookies mid-excavation!
