Last week our class made a little field trip, and if there is something I love it is field trips! Especially when the destinations have to do with history or architecture or art or anything nerdy like that. And you know, when you go on field trip with your archaeology class it is as history nerdy as it can be :D
So first of all we went to a big excavation that is going on in the city I live in. They have found a Stone Age settlement and graves, and also an Iron Age settlement with a graveyard. They also had found ovens like the one we excavated!
Here is one of the gigantonormous trenches at this excavation. O___O I mean, wow. Do you remember our silly 12 square metre trenches? Well… These were bigger. The tiny green line of grass behind the archaeologists is the border of the monsterous thing. Luckily for them they don’t have to dig everything by hand like we did xD
After visiting the excavation we went to a passage tomb! This was so cool!
You could actually
go crawl inside it, so of course we all had to try it! I have never seen one this close up before, so this was super fun :D
Lastly we went to a museum with an exhibition on Stone Age life, but they also had exhibitions with historical stuff which I love just a tiny bit more than the Stone Age theme. Here is a light therapy device from the scarier part of the 20th Century xD You’d sit on that chair, close the door and stick your head through the hole in the top, and let the magic lamps do their work!
