What is Context?

As an introduction to all of our activities explore ‘The Life of an Archaeologist’ and specifically the concept of context and what it tells us about the objects archaeologists recover. What does it mean if this cat statue is excavated in a temple?

Each school booking includes the provision of this material in an on-line introductory video which can be delivered in 20 minutes by the classroom teacher in a Year 7 history class or to Year 8s prior to their participation in the ‘Reconstructing the Past’ activity.
