Intriguing Artefacts

Posted by year5

5KWD and 5WUT were treated to an inspiring talk last Thursday by Mr. Julian King, father of Amaia in 5KWD.

He brought in some ancient artefacts from his personal collection and talked to the students about where they were found, what they were made of and what we can learn about the time that they were made by researching them and observing them in detail.

He is very knowledgeable and passionate about historical artefacts and the students were privileged to be able to actually handle the objects, some of which are hundreds, or even thousands of years old, and quite valuable.

We are very grateful that Mr. King gave up his time to share his expertise with us as we are inquiring into ancient civilisations.
