“It’s so good that it’s so hands-on and practical…the children learn so much more because they are actually getting to do things..it’s covered over a weeks worth of the curriculum in just a morning so far…” Beth Upton, Class Teacher, Halton Community Combined School
Featuring 3 hours of focused workshops, come and join us for the perfect fun and engaging way to help children to learn hands-on about prehistory. Let our Workshop Leaders guide your class through the thrill of their very own archaeological dig, discovering how to make real fire with historical and modern methods, exploring authentic techniques to create their very own cave art, and letting them handle genuine ancient artefacts from the Museum stores with our in-house experts.
Our skilled and experienced staff are on hand during a full day of learning and exploring the clues about how prehistoric people lived and worked. The children will be introduced to the techniques and methods that we know were used by our ancestors, as well as discovering how it feels to take part in their own archaeological excavation, unearthing treasure in the process. This is unlike any other prehistory experience they will have encountered, delivering key information in a memorable, fun way!
