iDig: Get the App

Archaeology iDig Icon

iDig is an extension activity to the Archaeology ActiveWorksheet Pack. Working with the iDig app, pupils can investigate their own archaeological excavation. They will unearth artefacts which tell the story of Halvar the Viking, who lived a thousand years ago. iDig is perfect for testing pupils historical enquiry skills, their ability to collaborate, and to craft stories based on a collection of information.
