Archaeology at Cobden Primary

Finds work at Cobden

Finds work at Cobden

Today I started work on a short archaeology project at Cobden Primary in Leeds (West Yorkshire, UK). It’s a school that I’ve worked with on several previous occasions offering presentations on dinosaurs, prehistory and archaeology in general. This week it’s time for the real thing: we’ll be carrying out a small scale excavation in the school grounds on Wednesday and Thursday.

Today has been spent in preparation for this. I’ve spoken to the children about how archaeology works and we’ve looked at the type of object that we might expect to find. Tomorrow we’ll be starting the field work. Let’s hope there’s a lot to find…
