The Big Dig

Clonmellon National School welcomes the Big Dig

The big dig offers Primary schools a basic introduction to archaeology which provides the children with a series of interactive, engaging and hands-on practical workshops.

Their main goal is to bring history to life through archaeology by a creating a fun and informative environment for children. The worksops allow children to critically think for themselves while exploring their past. In a fun and friendly environment the children are encouraged to explore and engage with historical timelines, history and most importantly, the job of an archaeologist.
