A typical day caters for upto 4 classes. We start altogether with a walk through timeline travelling back to the beginnings of human history in Britain. The children dress up as ancestors from the stone, copper, bronze and iron ages. The children then work in class groups on activities such as grinding corn, investigating houses, handling replica objects and hunting for mammoths. We then gather together fir a review of life and death through prehistory. See the website for more information.
Object handling sessions with high quality replicas.
Opportunities to try real archaeological techniques, such as sieving for ecofacts and drawing with a planning frame.
