Pupils got their hands dirty in the first week of the Festival of Archaeology.
Youngsters from Cobham Primary School took part in the special event, the Big Dig, every day.
Andrew Mayfield, community archaeologist for Kent County Council, said: “This is a fascinating project and a chance to unravel some of the archaeological secrets of Cobham village.
“Kent County Council is proud to be part of this prestigious event, which matches its own goals to widen involvement in archaeology and put people in touch with their own heritage.”
The dig is part of the Heritage Lottery-funded Cobham Landscape Detectives Project, and the Festival of Archaeology, a nationwide celebration, which is in its 27th year.
The fund awarded the council a £96,000 grant last year to run the project over three years.
The dig ran until July 30. For more information visit www.festivalofarchaeology.org
