  • Prehistory

HALF DAY (approx. 2 hours)

Pupils will examine the mystery of prehistory in an interactive and engaging workshop centred on life in Britain before the Romans. With no written records how do we find out about the people who lived in Britain over 2000 years ago? Pupils will become a team of archaeologists and find out how people lived, worked, fought and died from the clues that people left behind. Pupils will develop creative thinking, teamwork and historical enquiry skills in the fascinating look at how mankind changed from a meandering cave dweller to a land-owning farmer. Hands on activities will help pupils build a picture of life over thousands of years ago.
