Sally – your guide to the past

Hi my name is Sally. 

All smiles with archaeological fun!

I am an archaeologist working on the Isles of Scilly during the month of July and I shall be telling you kids about my adventures.  As well as digging on archaeological sites I am trying to speak to all the children who are interested in the archaeology of the islands.  From this blog I shall be telling you about the archaeology and the islands I will be asking  you to send me any questions you have about the archaeology of Scilly.

    I probably shouldn’t be posting on here because im a “groan up”! but just wanted to say that this site looks great! Keep up the good work.

  2. Andy Says:

    Where there any Roman finds on the Scilly Isles?

    Thanks for the support Paddy but Kid’s only i’m afraid! Andy – thanks for your question, the romans are pretty exciting aren’t they! The Romans had control of these islands around 2000 years ago. No roman houses have been found on the scilly’s, so we don’t know if they lived here. On the island of NorNour some Roman jewellery and art has been found – it might have been an area where Romans stopped to worship a god or goddess.

    Thanks for getting back to me Scilly digger. When you mean ‘stopped’ to worship… Where would they have been travelling to and from?

    Hey, they possibly travelled from the mainland, but it may just be that the styles of artefacts travelled rather than the romans themselves. We have also found roman artefacts on Tean in the form of a rubbish pit.
