Prehistory Centre

Prehistory Centre Project Updates

Phase Three

In 2021 we received funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development to install family and disabled washrooms and toilet facility and heating. The internal fittings have been completed and in Spring 2022 the Stone to Iron Age Exhibition opened in the Prehistory Centre, creating a Prehistory landscape backdrop for talks, shows and workshops. 

Phase Two

Since August 2019, The Prehistory Centre has been an indoor venue for Flint Knapping demonstrations and Archery instruction.

Phase One

The first phase of the Prehistory Centre has been completed with the kind support of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.  The Mound Area and Accessibility Trail to create a mini Hilltop feel to the reconstructed settlement and enable visitors to access the new roundhouses all year around. The foundations have been laid for the Prehistory Centre with an operations portal for the shop, visitor reception and volunteer training area now in full use.

The Eastern Plateau and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development have continued to support the second phase of the Prehistory Centre.  An insulated building of 25m x 20m, The Prehistory Centre will provide an indoor space to cater for larger groups with workshop areas and heritage interpretation.

“Opportunities for handling real artefacts would be fabulous as we can’t access these at school” – Claire Anderson, Garden City Academy

“Warmth is a big factor as we did not come last year due to the cold the prior year. There would be more convenient dates for us” – Mrs Hannah O’Malley, Bernards Heath School

“Variation would keep the children engaged. They’d get to have a multi-sensory experience if they could handle, interact with and observe artefacts” – Fiona Hennessy, Hazelwood

From visiting teachers


The backdrops and exhibitions have encouraged me to teach this period in more depth and detail. I feel much more confident teaching this period in the future.

It was a jaw dropping moment for the children! The hands on experience always sticks in childrens’ minds.
