History Detective Investigates: Stone Age to Iron Age is a hands-on, investigative approach to history. Learn all about early settlers in Britain and the story of the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age during the late Neolithic period over 6,000 years ago. The first Britons were hunter-gatherers who came from mainland Europe to settle in England. They bought wooden spears, flint handaxes and animals with them and were a nomadic people. Stone Age to Iron Age tells the story of how these people settled and began farming the land. They built villages of timber and stone houses such as Skara Brae on Orkney. Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous monument of this period, a technological marvel of the time built by raising over 80 blue stones to create the 'henge'. The Bronze Age bought with it metalworking using copper, tin and gold to make tools and beautiful everyday objects. The Iron Age was known for its hill forts, farming and art and culture. Contains maps, paintings, artefacts and photographs to show how early Britons lived. Ideally suited for readers age 8+ or teachers who are looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014. If you enjoy reading about the Stone Age to Iron Age then take a look at Ancient Greece, Ancient Sumer, The Mayan Civilization, The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China and Early Islamic Civilizations.
