Learn some prehistoric survival skills this half term at Stonehenge.

English Heritage is hosting Stone School until Sunday, June 5, 10am to 6pm.

The Neolithic-costumed bush craft crew will be on hand teaching families the essentials of survival and what to eat – and what not to eat - in the Neolithic.

Brave visitors will get the chance to design and build a trap to snare a beast using the few resources they would have had to hand 5000 years ago.

Chance your arm at spear–throwing and peckish visitors can try and put together a Neolithic menu.

Jennifer Davies, English Heritage’s Head of Historic Properties for Stonehenge said: “Bring the whole family along to Stonehenge this half term and get stuck into the Neolithic Stone School activities.

"It’s going to be hands on and great fun, as well as a fantastic opportunity to spend time together in the fresh air, while exploring this incredible World Heritage Site.”
