Database

You can explore and map the information within our database (as it currently stands) here.

Information packs

Towards the end of the project, we will produce a series of resource packs aimed at primary schools and designed to help teachers teach prehistory in their region. These will focus on some of the key burials in our study and will be available free as pdfs. In order to ‘bring the past to life’ for primary age children, we have commissioned new reconstruction drawings of three notable burials. The packs will also include the results of our ‘Inspired by the Past’ poetry commission from internationally-renowned children’s poet Michael Rosen.
