Has anyone ever put together a display from an archaeological dig?

The title says it all, really - I'm involved with a local historical society and we're putting together a display based on our recent archaeological dig.

We didn't find anything spectacular (lots of potsherds, etc) so I'm trying to work out how to create a display that will catch the eye of the visiting public, with very little resource.

All ideas gratefully accepted!

The only one I've heard about was very briefly mentioned in a seminar on the impact agenda - a group rented a table in the market square and put out objects (not sure, now I write this, how they avoided people assuming they were selling them!). But apparently people appreciated being able to come up and touch things, which might or might not be possible.
