St Patrick’s dig archaeology


On Friday St Patricks began excavating a site at St Leo’s as part of our archaeology inquiry. The site was divided into one metre squares the which teams of archaeologists were assigned.
The teams had their proper tools and set to digging into the past. Artefacts were then brought back to the class to be analysed and documented. Reports will then be published.

    This was a real archaeological dig. No additional plantings or slantings. The children were well aware that they might not find anything. But as all good archaeologists will tell you – finding “nothing” may be as revealing as finding “something”.
    Having said that , some very curious things were found – a rubber fish, a glass marble, different coloured soils, shredded rubber, cloth gauze and some strange painted items.
