The outreach team, headed up by Simon Bamblett, frequently call out to schools and after-school clubs in the wider community. The visit starts with a brief talk using a handling collection, built up from the excavations from the Southborough Valley, they teach children all about their ancient past. Fun games and group activities are used to explain how important archaeology can be to understand history.
SHAAS uses an outdoor classroom environment adjacent to the excavation trenches. Young visitors to the site have a great deal of fun as they learned about archaeology. The activities are tailored to both younger and older children
