Celtic Harmony and The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom have come together to design a day course for teachers to support planning and delivering an engaging Prehistory topic at KS2 exploring the changes in Britain from Stone, Bronze to Iron Age. Celtic Harmony Camp is an ideal location to inspire your knowledge and understanding of the topic, set in beautiful Hertfordshire woodland in a reconstructed Prehistory settlement with seven roundhouses. Celtic Harmony's award winning outdoor prehistory education programme has been running for twenty years, the charity was a finalist in the School Travel Awards 'Venue for History Learning' in 2017.

The day will also include a tour of Celtic Harmony Camp, prehistory settlement, exploring the roundhouses and surrounding woodland.
