Children will:

  • Handle artefacts including stone hand axes and flint tools up to 500,000 years old
  • Investigate how tools were made and what they were used for
  • Consider what evidence they provide of how people lived in the past

Suitable for: Year 3-6
Duration: 1 hour
Group size: Up to 35 pupils – you can book more than one session

We have sessions available from 10.15am.

Planning on having a picnic as part of your visit? FREE use of our lunch room is included in the cost of your session.

Teacher feedback:

“It was really valuable for the children to look at, touch and explore the real artefacts from the Stone Age – something we don’t get the chance to do in school. We have learnt lots!”
