About this item

Get ready for a prehistoric adventure! We discover ghostly Maes Howe, an enormous 5,000-year-old tomb covered in Viking graffiti. Britain is jam-packed with these mystical, silent burial places, and exploring them can tell us about the culture, society and beliefs of our earliest ancestors. It's time to get out your magnifying glass and examine the real artefacts that archaeologists have uncovered, from the giant capstones of megalithic tombs to the treasure of an ancient chieftain!

Prehistoric burial places lie silent across the British countryside. Long and round barrows, megalithic tombs and passage graves all provide important evidence of the daily life and burial practices of Stone, Bronze and Iron age communities. It's time to take a closer look at these ancient landmarks to find out why they were built, how they were used and who they were used by.

Learn about Maes Howe, West Kennet Long Barrow, Bush Barrow, Pentre Ifan, Lanyon Quoit and many more incredible sites of ancient burials, including the chariot queen, that can be found across Britain and give evidence of the lives of prehistoric people.
