Outside Education Group visits the Royal Commission





Richard Suggett shows the children a salmon spear, much to their surprise.
On Wednesday 23 January, sixteen home-schooled children accompanied by their parents had the opportunity to visit the offices of the Royal Commission in Aberystwyth for an afternoon packed with archaeological and historical fun-based activities. During the afternoon, everyone had the opportunity to study and peruse old maps, reconstruction drawings and aerial photographs, and handle original artifacts found in old houses ― the salmon spear was much admired! They also learnt how to plot the dimensions of a room using the total station laser scanner, to search for information through Coflein, our on-line database, and saw the wealth of historical photographs that are offered from the Britain From Above website. As you can see from the photos, great fun was had by all.

There was much interest in the aerial photographs.
