In preparation for examining early people and ancient societies in history we did examined the work of archaeologists. We looked at the work that archaeologists do along with how a person can become an archaeologist. This was really interesting! Archaeologists have to be really patient and enjoy working as part of a team.

We then got to work as an archaeologist! We were given a cookie, a compass, some kitchen paper, a toothbrush and a see-through bag. We had to excavate as many chocolate chips out of the cookie without damaging the cookie. We then had to clean the chips we managed to get. This was very difficult and you had to be very careful. The chocolate chips were like the artefacts that archaeologists are always looking for. and the cookie was like the ground in which they find the artefacts.
