Shang Oracle Bones

One of the most exciting artefacts we have from the Shang Dynasty are Oracle Bones.  They were used to predict the future and communicate with the Gods.  By interpreting the messages on the bones, we can understand a lot about people’s lives during the Shang Dynasty and what was important to them.
As part of our home learning work, Year 6 have made their own Oracle Bones using salt dough – can you decode the messages?
