Amazing archaeologist visit
Dr Diane Davies, the only UK based archaeologist specialising in The Maya, spent the morning in Ash Class last week. We had a fantastic time. She brought many artefacts which she had uncovered herself and we were lucky enough to be able to hold them and try and discover what they may have been used for and what they could tell us about The Maya. She also shared her experiences of being in the rainforest and what a difficult but wonderful environment it is to live and work in. We made a Maya calendar, did calculations using the Maya number system, deciphered glyphs and worked out what was happening in the oldest mural Diane had uncovered and we even tried grinding cacao and tasting it. An amazing morning which really brought this fascinating topic alive for the children.
