Are you aware of what archaeology really is?
How it impacts our every day and even our future?
Want a fun, exciting and immersive incursion for your students?
I know how stressed you are as teachers – been there, done that – for 5 years I taught in both the public and private sectors. I know the pressure you are under. Planning, PD’s, compliance etc all demanding your time, energy and yes, even your hard earned money!
As an archaeologist with a Grad Dip in Early Childhood Education I have designed my incursions with YOU in mind. You need
As a teacher your voice matters, YOU matter. You are one of the composers of the child’s life. You have an impact that will stay with them. I remember my first teachers, one in particular who believed in me, even though, in that school, I was not one the brightest students. His belief impacted my life in so many ways.
We specialise in inspiring children through information, hands-on immersion, fun activities and encouraging their imagination during our range of incursions. Cross-curricular and ticking many of the boxes across the curriculum, we take the pain out of finding fun, different and education packed ways to cover as many areas as we can for you, ensuring you peace of mind and a great memory for both you and your classes.
We have three levels of incursions………

The Incursion is based around the artefacts from the Somme – by researching and understanding these artefacts and lives of those who died over 100 years ago, we can look at parallels with our own lives, and the world we currently live in.
Understanding why it is important for us to Remember the Fallen the incursion includes a 1 hour + talk (See Level table above for options). The students also have the opportunity to handle WWI artefacts currently being researched by STC Archaeology, including those from the November 2018 excavations at Hawthorn Crater, Beaumont-Hamel, France with the Pro Level.
“Absolutely thrilled with the archaeology classes they cover various different aspects of the curriculum which is fantastic but also the kids are so engaged and thoroughly involved which shows the skill of Sue as an educator…cannot recommend these classes highly enough!!” Linda Demarco.
