What was it like to live in Prehistoric Britain and how can we know?

Become an archaeologist, handle artefacts from the Stone and Bronze Ages and use them to work out the differences between life in the Palaeolithic and Neolithic. Hold a 300,000 year old hand axe, examine a real mammoth tooth, and learn about flint knapping.
