Prehistory Day Trips

School Trips @ Celtic Harmony

Home / London & South East / Hertfordshire

Enjoy a WOW Prehistory day packed with hands-on activities in a beautiful woodland setting lead by our dedicated education team of archers, warriors, storytellers, farmers, woodsmen and weavers. The seven roundhouses create a village feel to explore the technology and lifestyle of ancient Britain.

There are several day trips covering different themes including Stone Age, Iron Age Farmer, Warrior and Chieftain.
Our expert educators have designed the days to link with new history curriculum for KS2 Prehistory studies from Stone to Iron Age and a focus on local history in KS1. New this year is the Prehistory Experience which will guide you from Neolithic Hunter Gatherers to Iron Age traders.

Why are Celtic Harmony great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Celtic Harmony Camp, the largest reconstructed Iron Age settlement in the UK has seven roundhouses located in a beautiful working woodland setting and has been offering hands-on heritage education for over eighteen years. Your class will learn more about the natural world and life in ancient Britain first-hand. Pupils also experience a more sustainable way of life for the future with sustainable facilities such as a solar powered green toilet.

Enjoyment: Children enjoy being outdoors and often face new challenges with positive attitudes, helping each other and working as a team.

Self Confidence: Children develop in confidence as they try new activities and progress towards successfully participating in new activities or seeing the visual results of a craft.

Social Skills: Children and young people appreciate the need to work together in challenges and the role in the group.

Appreciation for the Natural World: As children experience first-hand how the ancient Britons lived in harmony with the natural world, their appreciation, respect and belonging to their natural environment grows.

New Skills: Children learn new skills from weaving on a warp-weighted loom to shooting with a wooden longbow, and learn the importance of training to improve performance. Other skills include understanding how to dress appropriately for the outdoors and to feel comfortable being outside in a range of weathers.

Personal Development: Children learn self-reliance, how to take responsibility for their role in a group and work to succeed at new challenges whilst keeping a good humour in moments of discomfort.

Life Skills: Children and young people develop their skills to work cooperatively, communicate with each other and help their group achieve its goal.

Healthy Lifestyle: Children learn the benefits of outdoor activities and healthy leisure pursuits such as walking in the woods to Longbow Archery.
Motivation for Learning: Children are stimulated and remember an emotive hands-on experience, they learn to always try to achieve their best even in other areas of school and home life.

★★★★★ Teacher, Cuffley School
"Inspirational Trip. They learnt more at Celtic Harmony than 6 weeks of teaching could ever teach them. It was amazing for the children to experience life in the Iron Age first hand and see all the artefacts rather than just pictures on the internet! - March 2017"
