What food did they eat in the Stone Age?

Today we became archaeologists and explored what people ate during the Stone Age Era. The children have recently been learning about how Neolithic people caught and cooked their food and we had lots of fun foraging for natural materials to make weapons. The children decided that this would have been very difficult to do, especially if you were starving or the weather was cold!

The children examined three types of 'poo' and investiagted what was in each one. They needed to match up the samples to the correct person: Eric the huntergatherer, Eric the farmer and Eric the modern day man. We were able to see how the diet of Neolithic people changed as they began to grow their own food. We also looked at a modern  day sample and made some comparisons.
