North Somerset students have helped uncover artefacts never seen in this part of the UK, during an excavation run by Wessex Archaeology.
More than 300 students from Yatton Church of England Junior School participated in the workshops funded by Cadbury House.
The sessions were intended to shed light on Yatton's archaeological history and highlight its importance in the country's history.
Education manager at Wessex Archaeology, Sam Fieldhouse, said: "It's fantastic we're able to visit schools and show the children some of the artefacts from their town."
The North Somerset students worked on two excavation sites, unearthing remnants from the Bronze Age to the Medieval period - most notably sword moulds from the Bronze Age yet to be seen in this area.
