HA NOI (VNS)— An education programme I'm an Archaeologist organised by the Thang Long – Ha Noi Heritage Conservation Centre under the support of the UNESCO office in Ha Noi will take place at the Archaeology Site at 18 Hoang Dieu Street every Saturday regularly.

Targeting children from primary school age, the project enables participants to experience excavation techniques such as how to open a hole, clean the site surface and artefacts, take photos of the site and fill in information sheets about relics.

They will also experience interactive activities at the so-called Discovery Corner where they can put together pieces excavated from a supposed excavation hole, play jigsaw puzzle with objects like a ceramic bowl imprinted with flower and dragon patterns.

The organiser aims to raise awareness of the young generation about conserving and bringing into full play the value of the Thang Long Citadel heritage and to equip them with basic knowledge of archaeology. — VNA/VNS
