Historical Housing

This afternoon Chris Dyer came to help us with our history project. Chris explained what archaeologists do and we had a look across the Voe at Dalsetter where we could see the remains of a broch. He talked about the Shetland timeline and we completed the jigsaw puzzle in less than 2 minutes!

Chris talked about the types of housing in the Iron Age and in Viking times and in our groups we decided whether to make a broch or Viking longhouse. He showed us two models and showed us some photos of ancient houses.

We started to make plans of our models, it’ll be fun to see the finished models.
