We have just received some fantastic feedback from year 7 pupils at Michaelston College who took part in our ‘Romans in Wales’ workshop earlier today.
Here are some of their comments:
‘The lesson about the Romans was amazing. It made me realise that I would like to go to Cardiff University to help the archaeologists when I am older. It was really fun and interesting. I find it amazing that artefacts from thousands of years ago are still around today and will probably survive for many more years. The lesson was very educational and my favourite artefacts were the sword, helmet and the bowl with the engravings on it. Thank you so much for teaching us about the Romans. I don’t think that there could be anything for you to improve on.’
‘I found this lesson very enjoyable and educational, my favourite part was when we got to hold and feel the artefacts. I would’ve liked to see all the artefacts. It made me realise that I want to go to Cardiff University to study history…I really like the students because they were very kind and helpful.’
‘I really liked our lesson on History and Archaeology it was so cool, I loved the clothes, helmet and the sword they were my favourite. The helmet was so heavy! It is so unbelievable that all of artefacts are over 2000+ years old! I can’t even imagine what it was like 2000 years ago! I would never want to go back in time. I didn’t realise how interesting Archaeology was! I think you have interested me enough for me to study Archaeology in University/College. We really liked you coming in and sharing all your stuff with us.’
Excellent job, SwS team! Enjoy some (blurry) photos from the workshops at Michaelston College as a treat.
