It’s been a busy couple of months with the final Borders P7 classes taking part in the Work of an Archaeologist session.

We also had a visit by Trinity Primary to Hermitage Castle, where we worked jointly with Historic Scotland. Students did some role-play dramatic activities and had a tour of the Castle with Jane Gaze of Historic Scotland. They worked with an archaeologist to do some measured drawing of the castle walls and learned how archaeologists record sites with kite and pole aerial photography.
