STUDENTS have been digging deep and exploring relics from the past as part of an ongoing school project.
Year seven students from The Helena Romanes School had the chance to play the part of archaeologists for the day with the help of professional Anna Slowikowski from Albion Archaeology in Bedfordshire.
She came along to the Great Dunmow high school to hold workshops with the students on how archaeologists work and to talk about local excavations.
Excited students were given the opportunity to sort and record real finds from a Roman excavation site and many were amazed to find bones, oyster shells and pieces of pottery.
