Year 7 conduct a Crime Scene Investigation

It’s September 1991, we are hikers in the Alps who suddenly stumble across a dead body. Why did he die? Was it a murder or an accident? What did his strange tattoos mean?

Miss, but tell us, what really happened to him?

Clearly, year 7 students started their Secondary School History education from assuming that historians “know the answers”. What did they learn through our CSI?

We recreated the crime scene of Ötzi (the 5000-year-old skeleton). I liked that lesson because it made me feel like a real historian and it actually made me curious about the death of Ötzi and how people lived at that time. The lesson taught me that historians work from scratch like we did, and what we believe are only theories – not what REALLY happened.” Bella

We had a special lesson… a CSI. Everyone was very excited and I loved it. It taught me that historians never just say “OK this happened and that”, they always have many questions and they have to mix and match them.” Lukas

I liked that we could touch and imagine. It taught me that historians estimate.” Ola

I liked to see how fascinating historians’ work is. I learned that they get lots of information and try to connect that information to make sense of it.” Pepe

I really liked this lesson because we worked together, and in teams. We discovered how historians work. And historians never know the full answer, they only assume.” Katrina

It was fun. I learned that historians never know the answer, they just take the most likely evidence.” Ben

It was fun because it was different from any other History lesson.” Wiktor

Congratulations to every team of fantastic Time Detectives who cracked not only the Iceman Mystery but also their own assumptions!
