Our work

As well as selling our own work and services through this website, we undertake work for other organisations developing teaching resources for Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

rsz_DSCF1437Programme development

We researched, developed and trialed a Stone Age workshop at the Chiltern Open Air Museum which has been very popular with local schools and has attracted many schools who had not previously visited. We have also helped them develop a literacy day for schools based on the Mesolithic set Wolf Brother book by Michelle Paver.

We ran training for teachers and museum educators at Aylesbury County Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum who left with a better understanding of the material culture of prehistory, the main developments over time and with some ideas for activities to do with children.

Writing

We have written content for the Teaching History in 100 Objects website for the British Museum including about carved stone balls from Skara Brae, Bronze Age and Iron Age log boats at Must Farm and many other objects.

Consultancy

We have consulted with the Prehistoric Society, National Trust at Knole House and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall about the development of their programmes. We undertook audience research into the development of an archaeology display and programme of events at the Pitt Rivers Museum.

We also took part in a round-table discussion at The Hive in Worcester with Historic Environment professionals about the development of a framework for teaching this topic.
