Throughout the week we were aided by some of the older students from Northampton High School who kindly helped us to welcome students to the Time Truck and shared some of the things they had learned from a visit to the MOLA offices the previous week.
During their visit to MOLA, the students took part in a range of activities including animal bone identification devised by Sander Aerts, looking at metal x-rays through light boxes as well as some finds processing as well. Both the teachers and students spoke enthusiastically of their trip and how much they got to see and do whilst there.
We thoroughly enjoyed taking the Time Truck to Northampton and we're looking forward to preparing our next visit for later this year.
If you think you or your organisation would like to support this work, or if you’d like to discuss a visit to your school, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing email@example.com, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
