To link with our History topic on Ancient Greeks, a parent who is an archaeologist visited Year 5. During her visit, she spoke to the children about how archaeologists study human history by examining artifacts, which range from prehistoric tools and buildings to animal bones and tiny organisms. The children were very interested in learning about her experiences on different digs and also the training required to have a successful career in archaeology.  In addition to this, they thoroughly enjoyed the experience of learning about her successful excavations around the world and handling some of her tools.
