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.

  • They search through discovery boxes and from the objects found, try to work out which site they came from. Genuine medieval material is used.

  • They identify seeds using Easi-scope microscopes that project the image onto lap-tops.

  • Everyone goes on a trail around the Botanic Garden to see various plants and learn about how they have been used in different times.

  • Children design and colour a patterned piece of cloth using dyes made from berries

  • The Herb Garden is visited and children discover some traditional methods for curing common illnesses

    There will also be a fun, rubbish -sorting activity over lunchtime to consider what future historians can learn about us.
