Festival of British Archaeology

For 2 days during the Festival of British Archaeology (17 July and 1 August 2009), over 100 families visiting Tring and Berkhamsted Libraries dug for Roman pottery and looked at finds from archaeological sites around the area. Children became archaeologists as they cleaned and identified their objects and discovered what games Roman children played, what different pots were used for and how Romans kept their ears clean!
