From viewing hidden treasures to taking a tour of Chester’s civil war sites, sixth form students have been given a taste of studying History and Archaeology at the University of Chester.
Some 30 students from local schools and colleges took part in a sixth form subject day, hosted by the University’s Department of History and Archaeology.
The day comprised three activity sessions, including a tour of the city’s heritage sites and an archaeological finds session, which was conducted by Dr Howard Williams, an internationally-acclaimed archaeologist.
Dr Keith McLay, Associate Dean of Humanities and Head of History and Archaeology, said: “We felt the day inspired the students to think about studying these programmes. It was encouraging to see their enthusiasm for the subjects.”
