Colchester YAC build prehistoric monuments!
Colchester YAC members took a step back in time during their November 2016 meeting... and became prehistoric monument builders!
The young archaeologists worked together in groups, using clay, stones and sand. Mainly they built henges with barrows and altars, and there were a few 'stone' circles too!
Each group explained how their monument functioned, and what they were for. Then they moved on to a more modern building material... Lego! The Lego creations included temples, monuments and sacred sites.
The YACs had lots of fun building, and the discussions about prehistory and the meaning of different types of monuments were interesting too!
