Neolithic Archaeology, Kilmory Primary School

Photographic documentation from the class’s experiences during the fieldtrip have been combined with a wide range of other photographs, taken during school sessions, of woodland plants and their many uses. These photographs show plants as food, medicine, dye and fibre. Other photographs illustrate flint and antler tools and how they were used. Many of these photographs have been combined using Photo-manipulation software to create interpretative photomontages, with the addition of explanatory text, that will be exhibited during the project Sharing Day. All the children taking part have learned to take photographs and use unfamiliar software. They have also discussed and planned imaginative designs for communicating information on what they have learned about Neolithic Culture to other people. All the objectives for the creation of interpretation materials on the archaeological sites have been met and resource materials for the website have been produced.
