We carefully opened the box, this is what was inside. We identified a quill, burnt piece of old material, a stale, old piece of bread and a piece of a diary. We also noticed the date 1666 scratched on the inside of the lid.
We used our observational skills to add notes to what we found.
We discussed how we could research and find out more, our ideas were:
- Look in a book
- Search on the internet
- Go to a library
- Ask someone who knows
We then googled 1666 fire and found out our clues were from The Great Fire of London.
