You need to work like a detective to be an effective historian. Sometimes you have to sift through all the evidence – literally! In this task, you have to imagine that you are at an ancient crime scene. The body has been found and your task is to figure out what happened. It’s a “cold case”, because the person died long ago.
Enjoy your criminal investigation!
Kind regards from Ms Green
