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 highlight some of the major changes during this period. There is an emphasis on allowing pupils to consider the sources of evidence that form our understanding of this period of British history.


The aims of the unit for pupils are:

  • To gain an overview of the major changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
  • To consider how we know about a historical period without written sources
  • To research what it might have been like to live in Britain during this period


This pack contains everything you need to teach this unit, including differentiated activity ideas so that it can be adapted to the needs of your class. The Powerpoint text is also editable.
