Brian Pollard Visit - 19.09.18

Bronze Age Dartmoor Trip - 13.09.18

We're just back from a trip to Dartmoor as we are learning about the transition from the Stone Age into the Bronze Age.  Mr Johnson (a history expert!) came with us and explained to us what sort of animals were around in pre-historic times: wild bore (pigs with tusks) elk, packs of wolves, brown bear, mammoths and sabre-tooth tiger!  At the start of this period, people ate nuts, berries and any meat that they could hunt but by the end, Iron Age people were farming and could make clothes out of animal skin, sheep's wool and leather.  They were also able to make bread as they grew crops like wheat.

We had a fantastic day and learned a lot!
