Explore Birmingham in Prehistoric times in this hands-on outdoor workshop.

Pupils will explore life in the Stone Age and the Bronze Age investigating tools and materials in each period. Handle genuine prehistoric artefacts, build shelters and explore a real Bronze Age historic site in local woodland.

Turn this into a full day by booking a Discovery Day and participating the following afternoon session:

In the second session, create cave paintings, learning the techniques of Stone Age people. Make tools and paints using natural materials before creating your own artwork. Plus, become archaeologists too and learn how prehistoric tools were discovered at our recreated dig site.
