Year 4 Topic launch....with coprolites???

We’ve used a variety of sources of evidence in other topics to learn about how people lived in the past (photos, diaries, newspapers, artefacts) but we went one step further with the launch of our Viking topic.... we analysed ‘Viking poo’ to discover what Vikings ate and  how they may have cooked. Interestingly, we found that they ate a lot of bread, fruits (including apples) and fish. Most interesting of all, we concluded that they must have used stones in cooking or food making because they seemed to have inadvertently eaten several small stones!
