The Stone Age lasted 3.4 million years. It encompasses technological, and cultural development from the very first use of stone tools through cave dwelling to nomad shelters to basic farming and settlements of permanent shelters.
It is agreed that the Neolithic (late Stone Age) ended for most cultures between 6000 bc and 2500 bc. However Native American and Aboriginal time lines stretch up to exposure to modern cultures.
A lot of what we guess about the Neolithic is based on similarities draw between acheological finds and recent ethnographic studies of 'Stone Age' societies.
The proposed workshops are therefore based around these theories as they allow participants to actively engage with the art and technology being studied.
75 minute session split into 3 x 20 minute workshops. Below is a list of possible activites that school can pick from.
