History of Celtic Britain

Discover Celtic Prehistory

The Celts were a group of Brittonic tribes who lived in Britain during the Iron Age and through the Roman period. How and when they got to Britain in the first place, whether migration from the continent during the Iron Age, or along the Atlantic coast as early as the Bronze Age, is still being debated. Primary school level history requires children to be taught about changes in Britain from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age, and the impact of the Roman Empire on the British Isles. The story of the Celtic peoples is central to this theme and a great way to cover these topics.

Scotland was dominated by the Picts and Gaels, while Wales remained free of Anglo Saxon control and was divided between numerous kingdoms.

Children can study which parts of Britain they were living in, the language they spoke, their settlements how they lived, and the artefacts they left behind. They can also discover more about how they lived alongside the Romans and to what extent the distinct groups of people would have integrated. Your focus might be on the everyday lives of 'ordinary' Celtic people, or you might be studying warriors like Boudica, queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe. The trips below offer a range of Celtic school workshops perfect for KS1 and KS2 history topics.
