Introduction and Updates

Professor Clive Gamble, President of the Prehistoric Society

Welcome to this new initiative by the Prehistoric Society, the only UK society dedicated to researching, protecting and promoting the global archaeology of deep human history. 

The purpose of the Society is to investigate the fundamental questions of humanity; who we are, where we came from and how we evolved. These webpages are the best way to start exploring these questions.

Here you will find many topics about our prehistoric past, written by experts and available to all, but especially for those teaching and being taught at National Curriculum Key-Stage 2. Prehistory is where deep human history starts.

Read and enjoy!

The Prehistoric Society is the leading society for the promotion of study into our prehistoric past. These learning resources have been created by Society members and are free to use in the classroom.
