Picturing Prehistoric Lincolnshire Resource Introduction

Picturing Prehistoric Lincolnshire explores life in the county from Stone Age to Iron Age. It is designed to support teachers and pupils at Key Stage 2. The resource stems from strong links between the Lincolnshire Historic Environment Record (HER), and The Collection Museum, Lincoln.

The approach is active learning. Pupils can take on the roles of archaeologists and curators to examine the evidence from both organisations. The HER has provided documents, reconstruction drawings, photographs and films/animations. At The Collection, teachers and pupils can discover evidence in its displays and handling collections from hand axes, pottery and jewellery through to a reconstruction of the Fiskerton Causeway and Iron Age log boats. The focus is very much on local sites, stories and finds.

The Historic Environment Record holds records on all the known archaeological sites and historic buildings within Lincolnshire. This includes records and activity from the earliest Stone Age occupants (from around 500,000 years ago) to the present day. It also holds details of the archaeological investigations and excavations that led to the discovery of this evidence.

These records are held within a computerised database, linked to a GIS mapping system. The database acts as an index, showing which archaeological and historical features are known within the county, and where to go to find out more.

The records contained within the HER are available to view online, via two main website resources.
