Last month, our Penwith Discovery Club programme was rounded off with the chance for children to roll up their sleeves and get hands-on with Penwith’s amazing archaeology at Sancreed Beacon.
The children spent a fabulous morning experiencing what life is like for a professional archaeologist and unearthed lots of interesting artefacts as part of their ‘dig’. The session had a wonderful atmosphere and it was so inspiring to see the sense of wonder on the children’s faces as they learnt more about archaeological practices.
This free club has proven incredibly popular over the last six months and our team is keen to expand its offering and locations over the coming year. Watch this space!
Penwith Discovery Club was made possible by funding from Penwith Landscape Partnership.
