We are proud to present our educational session looking at life in Britain, in the Bronze Age, around 1300 BC.
Our Bronze Age characters arrive wearing the highest quality replica clothing of the era, with tools and weaponry, and miscellaneous objects .
Our presentation examines what bronze is, how it is made, where it came from, and be used for.
We introduce the students to the concept of life in a round-house, with a central hearth, and one door, and no windows!
Children get the chance to spin wool using a drop spindle,a primitive weaving loom. They will understand about the clothing and materials available at the time, learning strange new things! We discuss the origins of farming and the domestication of animals, the continued importance of hunting, and the use of flint, as well as bronze and copper tools.
Using artefacts and roleplay, we look at ancestor worship, burial practices, average life expectancy, trade and boats.
There will be dressing-up time (prepared in advance with school) and photo time.
We have nationwide coverage to enable us to deliver our school workshops across the country, wherever your school is located. From Suffolk to Anglesey, Isle of Wight to Scotland, we make history happen! Ask us for a quotation.
