BUDDING archaeologists dug deep to complete a course and were presented with certificates.

The group of students all have mild to moderate learning difficulties and worked on the course at Sheffield’s Burton Street Project - a social enterprise for those with learning and physical difficulties.

They learned how to record pottery and bones and looked at historical changes in the area. Trips to Doncaster Museum, Heeley City Farm and Staveley Hall - where they took part in a community excavation - were also included.

Glyn Mansell, senior manager at Burton Street said: “The field trips were very popular.”
