Discovering Archaeology in National Curriculum KS 1, 2 and 3

Archaeology is a multidisciplinary subject

Prepare yourself for those perennial questions that children (and adults!) ask:

 

‘Did people live underground then?’ (How archaeological sites build up)

‘How do you know they had tools like that?’ (Evidence)

‘How do you know it’s Roman?’ (Dating the evidence)

‘Do the eyeballs rot away?’ (Survival and decay of different materials) 

A teachers guide
