About this item

Get ready for a prehistoric adventure! Our first stop is ancient Skara Brae: hidden beneath a sand dune for thousands of years, this Neolithic village lets us step back in time to discover how our ancestors lived. Britain is brimming with these long-abandoned settlements, and exploring them can tell us about the culture, society, technology and beliefs of their inhabitants. It's time to get out your magnifying glass and examine the real evidence that archaeologists have discovered, from top secret tunnels to the remnants of extravagant feasts!

The ancient settlements discovered in present-day Britain are an incredible record of prehistoric life, giving us clues as to how our stone and bronze age ancestors would have lived. From stone huts to secret tunnels, we examine the evidence they have left behind. It's time to take a closer look at these ancient living places, examining how they were built, the materials used and the evidence of food, cooking, work and past-times.
