The exercises that you can download here should keep school children between the ages of around 8-12 entertained for an afternoon, though the younger ones might need a little help! Exercises include the replication of a ‘spinning disc’ from the Dordogne region of France dating to around 12,000BC, and the piecing together of a replica Victorian period tile ‘puzzle’ from an urban excavation. The principle in each case is to provide children with an engaging exercise which allows them to reflect upon the ‘story’ behind these archaeological objects.
