Year 6 trip to Šentjur

Last week Year 6 took a trip to Šentjur as part of the IPC topic, Out of Africa, a unit about the scientific timeline of evolution on Earth.
 
Unknown by most who attended the trip, Šentjur stands below a famous hill, Rifnik, which towers over the local town of Šentjur and has majestic views of the surrounding lands.  On a good day we can see all the way to Austria and Croatia from the peak.  This made it an ideal location for settlements to thrive, and they did so for thousands of years at this exact location.
 
Archaeological excavations have uncovered relics from up to 5 000 years ago, and then a plethora of instruments, tools, weapons, crockery, jewelry and other valuables, including the oldest discovered currency discovered in Slovenia dating back to the Celts who lived in the location in the 4th and 3rd century BC.  
 
These finds range from the oldest, being 5000 years old, the the most recent, in the Roman times and the arrival of the Slavs in the 6th century AD.  All this time the hill hosted constant inhabitants. There are replicas of the first houses inhabited by settlers in the Bronze age, and rock foundations and walls have been restored from later times.
 
The museum in Šentjur showcased hundreds of the finds which have been unearthed from the hilltop, but we were told that there are countless underground treasures still awaiting discovery by future generations of historians.
