What kind of sources tell us about the Stone Age?
This lesson addresses the question of how we can know about a period of British history with a lack of written primary sources of evidence. Pupils will be introduced to the concept of making deductions from evidence and they will use an information table to record what different artefacts tell us about the Stone Age.



  • To examine non-written sources of evidence about the Stone Age

The lesson plan includes differentiation ideas to adapt the activities for the needs of your class.
