The ten sessions in this unit aim to give an overview of the period from the Stone Age to the Iron Age in Britain and to evaluate some of the major changes during this time. Pupils will explore how lifestyles evolved during the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, looking at the factors that led to Stone Age hunter-gatherers settling into early farming communities and how these settlements in turn developed into hillforts in the Iron Age.


Pupils will learn about the significance of key sites like Skara Brae and Stonehenge and they will learn to apply analytical thinking to big questions about prehistory that still puzzle historians today. The unit also explores the causes and effects of key technological developments, like the discovery of bronze.


There is an emphasis across the unit on allowing pupils to consider the sources of evidence that form our understanding of this period of British history.
