The Roses Class had a fantastic afternoon on Tuesday 5th October when we were visited ( by Teams because of Covid restrictions) by world renowned archaeologist Professor George Nash.
Professor Nash told us all about his work discovering ancient rock art. He took us on a whistle- stop tour of the changes throughout the Stone Age to the Iron Age through some of his incredible archaeological finds. He showed us photographs of some of the incredible Stone Age sites and monuments in Shropshire and Wales, including the exciting discovery below:
'Recently discovered by archaeologist Dr. George Nash, a wall carving on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales may prove to be one of Britain's oldest examples of rock art. The carving of a speared reindeer is believed to have been created by a hunter-gatherer in the Ice Age more than 14,000 years ago.'
The children had many questions for Professor Nash and he was very impressed by the Cave art museum exhibits they had created and their knowledge of the period : )
