Prehistoric Britain Ignite

This week we had the use of Hertford Museum loans box containing many interesting artefacts of historical significance. The children explored items such as a Palaeolithic hand axe, a Bronze Age tanged and barbed arrow head and Mesolithic scrapers. Their historical enquiry involved:

What were the artefacts?

Who used them?

From what period? Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic?img_13451

They had the opportunity to sketch these artefacts using hard and soft pencils to create shadow and shading.
