Local Schools Discover Archaeology at Longforth Farm
Over 200 schoolchildren from four local schools were given the exciting opportunity to visit an archaeological dig following the discovery of an unknown complex of medieval buildings in Wellington, Somerset.
The hands-on workshops were organised by Wessex Archaeology and Somerset County Council and were funded by Bloor Homes.
Students were given a tour of the site and a chance to see archaeologists at work before getting creative with clay and designing their own decorated floor tiles inspired by those uncovered on site.
Teachers described the workshops as “a wonderful opportunity” and “absolutely brilliant” and the children left the site as budding archaeologists!
