No visits today but a wonderful day to catch up on our on site activities. We continued our dig using the metal detector and probe to help us find even more nails! We also found pottery including fine bone China which could have belonged to the Lewis family (Mr Lewis was the first head teacher of Burlington School).
This afternoon we finished our Anglo Saxon brooches and runes (not technically local but we were finishing off our topic work). We also looked at some of the artefacts on loan from the Dock Museum including a range of Viking items.
We were joined again by David the metal detector expert/archaeologist who enjoyed answering the many questions asked by the class. We’ve certainly covered a lot of ground this week!
