SHeaton: December 2017
Over the past few weeks, an archaeology club run by Mrs Heaton has been travelling back in time from the Vikings to the Romans to the Egyptians.
During our first lesson we learnt how the Vikings wove thread to make shoelaces. Some of us even took extra thread home to make more. We have also baked Viking bread which we ate with honey; made Roman ink and written in Latin and mummified an orange which this week we finally unveiled after keeping it in the airing cupboard for a month. We revealed an orange that still looked liked an orange except it's skin was shrivelled and hard. It however still smelt pleasant thanks to the cinnamon and cloves which were placed inside along with the salt to preserve it.
