The Many Successes of Challenge Week

Though the current installation of the Archaeology Basics video series by the students from Ashington Learning Partnership is at an end we have one more in store for you. Now you can hear from the students themselves about their experiences throughout the project. It’s really quite inspiring stuff!

Brian Cosgrove, the lead teacher for the project had this to say:

“Challenge week was, without doubt, a fantastic success with all of the students taking part finding their niche in the project. They didn’t want to leave on the final day! They want to follow up the work on Test Pit 63. Naturally I have to thank the ‘stars’ of our four little videos. Tom Gardner needs extra praise for the time and effort he dedicated over the three days; working with the students and welcoming them into the team on site. They really did feel a part of the Kaims project and finding the timber in the trench was inspiring. I would (of course) like to thank Graeme, Paul, Cole, and everyone at the BRP and the Kaims for making an opportunity like this available to our students. I hope we can build on this in the future.”
