Primary 4 got a visit from Sheila and Ally from Mesolithic Deeside. Mesolithic Deeside are a group of archaeologists, students and local volunteers investigating the river Dee area.
We explored timelines, finding out when Romans existed all the way to the Stone age!
“Romans were 2,000 years ago!” – Benji
We found out about searches in local areas – some of them near where we live.
“When they search the ground they have to move up and down fields” – Delia
Then we got to see some of the important things that had been found in local fields and how they may have been used many years ago.
“Flint was used for cutting things up and for making fire” – Martha
“Hammers were made of wood and stone” – Jack A
“Minerals were thrown on fire to create different colours” – Glika
