Digging up History

Year 4 have had an exciting start to their topic examining and investigating Roman remains found on our very own school grounds! They have been inquisitive archaeologists and keen historians. During their discoveries, they got to hold Roman pottery which was 2,000 years old – they were very careful.


They also used the edge of a broken piece of pottery to work out the size of the roman pot. You can use the edge to draw the circumference. Then you measure the diameter and times it by 6.5. This will tell you the height of the pot. This drawing is the circumference of a pot that would have been 2.7metres tall!
