Day School: Bluffers Guide to Prehistory

Ref: C3741254

Prehistory covers over 99% of archaeological time and yet most of it still remains a mystery as our understanding depends on interpretation of what little evidence we have. This course will provide enlightenment on what we know about British Prehistory and what we don’t know. The knowledge gained by participants in discussion and material handling will enable them to fully engage in any debate on the subject.
