Connect your class to the British Museum for a free live interactive workshop.

Book this workshop and your students will be taught remotely by an expert from the British Museum. Through live activities, interactive quizzes and thought-provoking questions your class will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the past. The expert will help them develop their historical enquiry skills and challenge them to think critically.

Students peek into the differences between the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages in Britain. Students will use archaeological objects from the distant past to explore the homes of prehistoric people and compare them to their own homes. The quiz will reveal that prehistory was not all made from bronze and iron, and will showcase the range of material that filled prehistoric people's lives.

Ages: 7–11 (KS2)
