Schools Resources


This information pack (and associated classroom handout) is designed to facilitate the teaching of prehistory (Stone Age to Iron Age) in primary schools (ages 7-11). It focuses on prehistoric burial and the often spectacular or intriguing objects placed with the dead. The pack includes three specially commissioned poems by children's poet Michael Rosen - inspired by three real prehistoric burials - as well as a series of imaginative reconstruction illustrations. General background information about the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age across Britain (and burial during those times) is also included.
