Life in prehistoric times may sound like fun, what with all those woolly mammoths and massive stone circles. But in award-winning author Chae Strathie’s book, developed in consultation with experts from the British Museum, you’ll discover what life was really like for kids in prehistoric times, from living in a cave and hunting wild boar to being forced down mines to collect flint… and even eating butter kept in a bog! Maybe modern life’s not so bad after all… A funny and accessible introduction to prehistoric times, this is a must-see event for kids with a passion for horrible history!
