About us

We are a group of archaeologists and educators with knowledge and expertise in Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age Britain. Our aim is to support teachers, museums and heritage organisations to develop excellence in this new area of the primary history curriculum.

Kim Biddulph


Kim studied archaeology, specialising in prehistory, at the University of Nottingham and University College London. She’s happiest when helping children learn how to make bramble rope or prehistoric pigments and telling them stories around an open fire. Always willing to dress up to make the past come to life, she’s been people as diverse as an Iron Age woman, Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Kingsley, a nineteenth century explorer. She’s been lucky enough to have worked at Hampton Court Palace, the V&A, the British Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum, but running Schools Prehistory is the best job ever.

Giles Carey (Webmaster)

914128_610639582282606_1061165588_oGiles is a heritage data specialist as well as a prehistorian, specialising in Neolithic Scotland. He believes passionately in telling the stories of local, often less well-known sites, making the latest discoveries accessible to all. When not working his day-job as an Historic Environment Record officer, he can often be found on top of a windy hill doing geophysics, taking aerial photographs with a kite or digging here, there and everywhere – but especially Orkney. When it’s too wet even for him, he can be found creating websites, building 3D models and exploring LiDAR imagery of whole landscapes.
