YourDIG : Melting Pot

We worked with the University of York’s Melting Pot project to use cutting-edge archaeological science to explore Viking-age cooking and society. For this YourDIG project, we invited A-level science students from [York College](link to: ) to carry out experimental archaeology to see if we could replicate how Vikings cooked over 1100 years ago. The resulting samples were investigated by the University’s BioArCh lab to produce new data for the Melting Pot project, show the students how scientific methods are applied in archaeology and make them aware of some of the careers available in archaeological science.
