An interview with a real-life Stone Age man, Will Lord

Meet a real-life Stone Age Man at Grime's Graves

We sent English Heritage Members Flo and Alfie Tyrrell to Grime’s Graves, a neolithic flint mine in North Norfolk, to meet prehistoric survival expert Will Lord and learn all about what life was like for the people who lived here in the Stone Age.

Watch the video to discover how Grime’s Graves got its name, how the miners saw what they were doing underground, where the prehistoric people slept and where they went to the toilet. Will even tells his favourite prehistoric joke!

Prehistoric Poster: Start your mega timeline!

In every issue of our Kids Rule! magazine we’re giving away a poster showing how people lived in England through the ages. The first one featured in the March 2017 issue and shows life at a Stone Age settlement in 8000BC.

If you don't want to tear it out of your magazine, or have missed one, we've created a version online so you can download it here.

Each of the posters will follow on from each other, allowing you to collect and create a mega timeline of English history!
