Build a Roundhouse
From the Young Archaeologists' Club, this activity looks at the design and construction of a stone age roundhouse. Students use board, dowel, twigs and clay to make a wattle and daub construction. The activity can be used to look at design, the use of materials and even to compare ancient building techniques with modern ones.
These resources have been contributed by the Young Archaeologists' Club (YAC). YAC is for young people who love archaeology and all things historic. Teachers can join YAC as a School member to receive great teaching ideas.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
