School Days | Stone Age to Iron Age


What will happen in the day?


We will impart a basic knowledge of Britain through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, linking historical development to our collection of artefacts.

Covering over 10,000 years we will look at stone tools, the development of pottery, farming, houses, woodwork, burial, stone circles and 'henges', bronze and iron, ending with lots of Celtic helmets and swords and armour. The pupils love weapons and warfare.

Topics covered include:
o Stone Age and Bronze Age artefacts and tools.
o Burial customs.
o Religion, ritual and henges.
o The British Celts. Weapons and warfare. How they lived in the north east.
o The coming of the Romans, the end of everything?
