During your school trip, your group will experience life within a nomadic Neolithic family in search of a new homeland. Witness their transition from hunter gatherers to farmers, and develop some of the skills they would have needed to survive.

Our historical narrative will allow your children to experience Neolithic life and culture, as they move in search of new land. Your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.
