I have a nice big class to teach Landscape & Local History, at Guilden Morden and the people are very friendly. We’re now past the half way point of the course and will be having a break for half term. Even when teaching you always learn so much and as Guilden Morden is on the other side of Cambridgeshire to where I live, it isn’t somewhere I know very much about but the lovely thing about teaching the subject that I am doing, is that I get to learn all about that area from the students. So far we’ve had some fantastic artifacts brought in by the students to show things they have discovered themselves. There was an amazing prehistoric hand-axe found in the fields in the area – something I would love to find myself! And this week a stunning Nordic designed artefact made from horn or bone found in the Fulbourn area which is thought to be perhaps a handle for something. I can’t wait to see what turns up over the next half of the course!
This is a strange feature, a bricked section within a tree trunk in the Cambridge Botanical Gardens.
