Celtic Harmony Prehistory Inset Day – 5th July 2017
Celtic Harmony are inviting primary teachers who are planning their Prehistory topic for next year to an inspiring Prehistory Inset Event on Wednesday 5 July, 3 to 6pm, at Celtic Harmony Camp, the UK’s largest reconstructed Iron Age settlement near Hertford.
Guest speaker Archaeologist Keith Fitzpatrick Matthews will take you on an animated journey through Prehistory from Neolithic Hunter Gatherers to Iron Age society. Keith sets the scene of a changing environment and new discoveries that lead to changes in everyday life over 800,000 years of Prehistory, with real artefacts to bring the period to life.
Experience first hand how to make cordage and weave on a warp weighted loom lead by Luca Parrella Heritage Director and his team of expert educators with over twenty years in the field of primitive skills.
Teachers will have an opportunity to explore the new roundhouses, where pupils can stay overnight, and learn more about the positive impacts of learning outside the classroom and residential trips from guest speaker Kim Somerville of Learning Away.
There are plenty of ideas and resources to take back to the classroom. Limited spaces please confirm your attendance at:
