Age group: KS2 Subjects: Geography, History
The wild landscapes of Northumberland are home to hundreds of examples of pre-historic rock art. These markings on rocks, also known as cup and ring marks, were made by Neolithic and Early Bronze Age people between 6000 and 3500 years ago. But what did these markings really mean, and why were they made?
Join staff at The Sill for this interactive workshop, and use objects, maps, and 3D images to examine the clues and come up with your own answers to this pre-historic mystery. Pupils will also be able to make their own piece of rock art to take away.
