Stone Age to Iron Age

This fantastic new resource explores the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age through a variety of artefacts and costume. Using the artefacts pupils can see how tools impacted the way early man interacted with the landscape, first as hunter-gatherers then as farmers. The development of metal working in the Bronze Age and its refinement in the Iron Age help pupils understand how tribes interacted with each other, the role of tribal chieftains and the religious beliefs that led to man creating places like Stonehenge and Avebury.

Ideal for use with Key Stage 2, year 3/4.
