The pupils of Cobham school have been digging up the school yard this week with help from the Cobham Landscape Detectives. Andy Ward has given us an update on today’s activities:
Today, at the school assembly, we displayed all of the finds from the last couple of days, uncovered through the excavations in the school playing field. The children thoroughly enjoyed their time learning how, and why, archaeologists carry our excavations. They uncovered a number of fantastic finds, which will be photographed and displayed in the future, including a boar’s tusk, a piece of Staffordshire Slipware dating c.1750 and a piece of Georgian Red Ware c.1800. Hopefully this week of archaeology has instilled a passion for the past in the next generation.
