Notre Dame’s lower sixth A level Classics class was treated to a rare glimpse of a valuable artefact on February 28: ex-student Megan Pugh!
Megan took time out from her Archaeology degree at the University of Bradford to bring our students a range of intriguing objects from Roman sites in Britain. Megan, who attended Corpus Christi Catholic College before studying A level Geography, History and Classical Civilisations with us, is compiling an archaeology study pack for use in schools as part of her dissertation. We were more than happy for her to trial this study pack with our willing students. Megan spoke about each object in turn and taught the class the correct handling procedures, which is vitally important with such fragile artefacts. She also answered our students’ questions about studying archaeology at university.
Megan’s presentation whetted the students’ appetite for their visit to the University of Bradford later this month. They will see Megan again when they attend an Osteoarchaeology workshop on March 25.
We are very grateful to Megan for giving up her time to speak to current classics students, and wish her the best of luck with her dissertation.
