Fun with finds at Colchester YAC
Earlier in 2017, members of Colchester YAC were involved in an excavation at a Roman villa site at Fordham near Colchester. They worked really hard digging and discovering some remarkable Roman finds, alongside members of the Colchester Archaeological Group. You can read about the excavation in an earlier blog post.

The next part of the archaeological process was to wash, identify and sort the brick, tile and bone that they excavated at the Roman villa site at Fordham, near Colchester. The YAC members worked in groups of four at Roman Circus House to process the finds. The finds includes brick, tile and fragments of pottery, as well as lots of animal bone.
During the session, the Colchester YAC members also drew pictures of Roman villas, taking reference from Colchester Archaeological Group"s library... and they even made models of Roman villas from Lego!
