As the start of a new topic in Razorbills of Roman Exeter, the children completed an excavation. They needed to use the tools archaeologists actually use to carefully take away the sand in order not to damage any evidence underneath.
Once the clues had been unearthed, they needed to decide which type of Roman it was. Clues were: a broken shield, arrow heads, Roman coins, a belt buckle and some pottery. From these clues, the children decided that it had to be a Roman Warrior.
We discussed factors such as why the leather belt wasn’t there and only the buckle and why there were only arrow heads. It was a lovely way to start the new topic.
Special thanks to Mrs Baker and Mrs Muldoon for their support and assistance!
