Archaeologists for a day!



We were very lucky to have a visit from the School of Irish Archaeology last week when they brought The Big Dig to Our Lady’s. The replica ‘Viking House’ and excavation site allowed the children to explore the Viking world through a simulated archaeology dig. As they dug through the site, the children unearthed Viking treasures and artefacts dating back 1,000 years. They learned about the lives of our Viking ancestors as history was brought to life. The children were fascinated by the range of artefacts, especially the swords!
