Shrewsbury – Rosemary Shamey's sixth grade class (6 yellow) at the Sherwood Middle School participated in a “Mock Dig” Sept. 10. ?Students took turns as diggers, scribers, sifters and bag taggers while exploring three levels of what would actually be on a real dig – Modern, Industrial Revolution and Colonial. ?Students unearthed a variety of items including a cell phone, coins, china, thimbles and more.

Kimberley Connors-Hughes, a Harvard University-trained archaeologist and Mass Cultural Council Creative Teaching Partner, was in charge of the mock excavation.
