This exciting exhibition explores the daily lives of our prehistoric ancestors. Discover their pioneering inventions, and a never-before-seen Bronze Age hoard recently discovered in County Durham. This exhibition has been curated by a team of students from the Museum and Artefact Studies MA degree at Durham University.
Explore life in ancient Britain, from warfare to rituals, and the way Bronze Age people buried weapons and treasure in hidden hoards. This exhibition gives a face to prehistoric people, and challenges the idea that these were ‘primitive’ cultures.
The exhibition closely follows the topics taught in schools as part of Key Stage 1 and 2 history lessons. Families are encouraged to follow stories of Bronze Age people as you walk around the gallery. Marvel at the beautiful objects they crafted and the lives they led.
