The study of the prehistoric period of our history (beginning with appearance of human beings and ending when the Romans invaded Britain) can really capture the imagination of children.

Prehistoric humans were hunter-gatherers and survived by hunting animals and finding food to eat.  Gradually people learned new skills; they learned to herd animals and grow crops. Then they discovered the secrets of making bronze and iron which replaced stone as their material of choice for making weapons and tools. The rest, as they say, is history.

We have 50 excellent Prehistoric Britain themed websites on offer. The resources encompass the subjects of History, Design & Technology, Geography and Art & Design. Collectively, they cover the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. As usual, the resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning – each of which will effectively support this really appealing and very far-reaching theme.
