School unveils archaeological information board

11:49am - 17 December 2021

Chestnut Park Primary School in Yatton has installed an archaeological information board next to the steel sea eagle sculpture that welcomed its first pupils in September.

It explains the archaeological significance of the school site, including the various finds made before the school was built. 

Between 2015 and 2018, several fascinating 'late prehistoric and Iron Age pits' were uncovered on the school site, one of which contained the claw of a sea eagle.

Headteacher Tamara Dexter said: "We are absolutely delighted with the sea eagle sculpture and now the information board which will inspire pupil learning and educate visitors about the significance of the school site.”
