This session has been designed to support the study of Prehistory in Britain.

The children will learn about the changes and developments that happened throughout Prehistory.  They will learn about how changes in the climate affected the landscape, plants and animals which led to changes in the way people lived.


It was interesting to see how you used the exhibits and artefacts as you can transfer the skills to work in class.
