The group is being run by Heritage Lincolnshire, with DBS checked volunteers.  A copy of our risk assessment and safeguarding policy can be seen on request.  This is a ‘drop off’ club, and as such strict adult to child ratios will be maintained.  Attendance to the club can only be confirmed by filling in the membership and covid agreement forms and paying the term fee on our website.  You will then receive a confirmation email.

We had a great time at our first Summer Term Archaeology Cub on Saturday 30th April 2022.

 
We worked with LAG and Jane Young to explore ceramics. The members were introduced to and got to handle lots of different types of pottery, including several types of 'puzzle' or trick jugs. They then decorated their own plant pots, broke them (with appropriate PPE of course!) and practiced reconstruction by putting them back together again.
 
Looks like they had a great time!
