    ·            Meet a Tribe Member - when you enter this workshop, sit down, be quiet and wait to see what is happening!

    ·            Beliefs & Burials - children discuss the beliefs of Stone and Bronze Age peoples and explore their worshipping practices and rituals

    ·            From Hunters to Farmers - children compare and contrast the difference in lifestyle between hunter gatherers and early farmers. What do they hunt and gather? And what role does technology play?

    ·            Weapons - from picking up a rock, to shooting a missile. Learn how our ancestors developed the tools to hunt and survive, in a dangerous world

    ·            Trading in Stone Age - a History Explorer takes the children on a journey, following Stone Age peoples on their travels. Where did they go to trade, how did they get there and what were they hoping to trade?

    ·            Grinding Grain - after gathering grains from the fields, the next step is to grind them into flour. Children grind some grain using both a saddle quern and a rotary quern and compare the two. They take their flour back to class
