On the 18th January the girls in Year 4 at Shrewsbury High Prep School were treated to a presentation about archaeology from Jenny Britnell of CPAT. Jenny showed her audience aerial photographs of sites, images of artefacts and explained what archaeologists do. She also distributed newsletters and leaflets about the Young Archaeologists’ Club. Only a day or two later Jenny received a whole bundle of thank–you letters from the children, who from the quotes below seem to have enjoyed her visit very much!

“My favourite bit was when you showed us the [pictures of] skeletons, it was a bit freaky but that would NEVER stop me from becoming an archaeologist”.

“I liked it when you showed us the photograph of the man who was doing the excavation in winter and had a funny looking shelter”.

Jeff Spencer, January 2012
