I have a PhD in history and am a qualified teacher. I have taught learners from 3 years old to postgraduate level. In my masters degree, I studied a unit on prehistory and how to interpret artefacts. I have attended courses provided by the Iron Age Museum at Butser Ancient Farm to learn more about prehistoric life. I have taught archeology to young learners in UK schools and have had training on how to deliver lessons on the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age to learners aged 6-11.
Each week, Learners will have a creative project to complete. Depending on how your learner chooses to create the project will depend on the time it takes and whether or not your learner needs supervision.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
During the class, we will talk about hunting for food. Please ensure that you and your learner are comfortable with these discussion before enrolling.
We will refer to various images of artefacts from different periods of prehistory. These include: Images of the Havering Hoard and scholarship from Historic England, the Museum of London and Archeological Solutions Images of Iron Age artefacts and replicas from Butser Ancient Farm Images of Bronze age artefacts held in museums Images of Stone age artefacts and paintings. The class content has been inspired by independent research, personal interest and teaching prehistory to children in English schools.
