Pupil Archaeologists

Clevedon Learning Trust pupils became investigative archaeologists to understand more about humans from history.

The Mary Elton Primary School pupils used methods to discover, examine and record what their ancestors ate - including dissecting a fake human poo. 

The children had hands on excavation experience and uncovered evidence about the eating and living habits of Romans humans. They had around 30 minutes to carefully dissect their fake poo, putting everything they find onto their 'Finds Tray' plate. 

The children then had to record their findings on their organic remains recording sheet just like real archaeologists.

Teacher Cheryl Brown said: “It was a wonderful learning experience and the pupils excelled themselves.”
