Our brand-new digital livestreaming service brings the unique archaeology and engaging guides of Creswell Crags into your classroom!
Using our greenscreen technology and closeup cameras, let us guide you through the past. You’ll be able to have a close look at some of our real collection objects, rarely seen by the public!
We have two exciting sessions designed to compliment your KS2 History Stone Age topic, or your KS2 Evolution topic, delivered to you as a private link via Zoom.
Simply the Stone Age
Puzzling over the Palaeolithic? Need to know about the Neolithic? This session is for you! Our “Simply the Stone Age” session is a quick romp through the three stages of the British Stone Age. Learn about the changes in the humans, animals and environment from the earliest of our ancestors to foot in our region, all the way through to the settlements and stone henges of the first farmers. Facilitated by a knowledgeable and engaging member of our Learning team, you will see splendid Stone Age artefacts close-up – some of which were found right here at Creswell Crags!
Mutation, selection, adaptation – oh my! This session explores the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection, or how life on Earth came to be so wonderfully diverse. We’ll take you through some of the basic principles, like what mutations are, and how mechanisms like natural selection can eventually lead to huge changes through time! Using examples from our museum collection, we’ll illustrate these ideas with plants, animals and even ourselves, touching on case studies by Charles Darwin, Alfred Russel Wallace and other important figures in the world of biology.
