Download free PDF resources specially developed to support the new prehistory curriculum. This says that pupils should be taught about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. Specific examples are given, including:-
* late Neolithic hunter-gatherers and early farmers
* Bronze Age religion, technology and travel, for example, Stonehenge
* Iron Age hill forts: tribal kingdoms, farming, art and culture
The Wiltshire Museum feature objects used by people who were alive at the time of Stonehenge. One of these burials is the shaman, a priest who was alive at the time of Stonehenge. The objects buried with him are the best evidence we have for bronze Age ritual and religion. Find out more by watching our award-winning videos featuring archaeologist Phil Harding - a patron of the museum and best known for his appearances on Time Team.
