Age group:



History, Geography, Maths

This two-part session focuses on Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age history, using the fantastic archaeological examples of these time periods that can be seen in the National Park.

Pupils will begin their investigation with a session in school or at The Sill, led by a member of the learning team, to look at objects from each Age and begin to understand changes in technology and way of life over time. This will include an introduction to the site at Lordenshaws, and information about how archaeologists find out about life in the past.

The second part of the investigation will take place on-site at Lordenshaws, where Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age remains can be seen. This session is led by staff in costume from Ancient Britain – please visit their website for more information.  As this is an outdoor site, this session can be weather dependent. However, we can make arrangements for it to be delivered at The Sill in case of bad weather.
