What can you Discover?
A staffed education programme for KS2
Using the significant local history event of the discovery of Richard III the ‘What can you Discover?’ programme is designed to help children’s understanding of how we can use evidence from archaeological discoveries, backed up by science, to make historical claims.
The programme starts with an introduction about archaeology and what we can learn from the evidence we find. Children then work in five groups and complete all the activities by the end of the day.
There will also be a fun, rubbish -sorting activity over lunchtime to consider what future historians can learn about us.
