Stone Age school workshops

Prehistory curriculum at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Chiltern Open Air Museum is an award winning museum and is highly qualified to deliver a prehistory curriculum. We have many archaeologists and specialists on staff who have worked with us to develop our Stone Age programme for schools.

Our Stone Age school workshops (Middle Stone Age)

In our Stone Age Day the children will be introduced to different aspects of Mesolithic life: the focus is upon the skills for life during the middle Stone Age period. Your class will be met by a costumed interpreter who will introduce you to our replica campsite.

The children will find out how stone-age people lived and they will make a cordage bracelet, cover a temporary shelter, handle replica artefacts, practise the skills necessary to start a fire and re-enact a hunt. They will also learn how stone-age people made tools and pigments.

Please be aware that this theme day takes place outside so please dress warmly.
