We are fabulous Historians
This week we have been continuing our learning journey through the Bronze Age looking at the Beaker People and what they brought to Britain. We found out through research that the Beaker way of life involved making pottery and metal, holding feasts and building stone circles.
By 2100BC, Britain was mining metals. Trading ships travelled to mainland Europe carrying copper, tin and precious objects made by metalworkers.
Some settlers who arrived belonged to the Beaker culture. Beaker people lived in clans led by powerful chiefs. They held religious ceremonies at stone circles, and buried their dead in circular graves. These customs became part of life in Ancient Britain.
Next week we will be looking at Stonehenge.
