Pupils at Soham’s Weatheralls School spent three days digging up the past as part of lessons on understanding time.
Archaeologists from Cambridge University spent three days working with children in Yr 3 in a test trench in the school grounds. During the dig they unearthed roofing material, glass, pieces of pottery and a clay pipe.
Dr Elsa Lee explained: “We didn’t expect to find anything spectacular, the idea was to try to help the children to grasp the concept of time.”
Pupils are this week working with an artist to an exhibition on their findings.
