Prehistoric archaeology of the British Isles - 6 lesson course

Prehistoric Archaeology of the British Isles

Delve into the past with local Dr Amber as she introduces you to the prehistory of the British Isles. The course is aimed at anyone who is interested in the archaeology of Britain. It will cover 500,000 years of prehistory from the Palaeolithic to the Iron age, providing you with a grounding in British prehistoric archaeology and the changing ways of life over this vast period.

Lesson 1
The course outline will follow the chronology of prehistory, starting with the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age) (500,000-10,000 BC). This week will introduce the different hominin species, such as Homo erectus, Neanderthals and Homo sapiens and their use of fire, tools and rock art.

Lesson 2
This week will discuss the changes we see in Britain in the Mesolithic (Middle Stone Age) (10,000-4,000 BC), including the use of microlithic (small) flint tools, the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and rock art. The much-debated change from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic period will also be introduced.

Lesson 3

Week three will discuss the Neolithic (New Stone Age) proper (4,000-2300 BC). This period is seen as the single most important economic transition in British History due to the beginning of farming, large scale trade networks and new ways of burying the dead.

Lesson 4
We will look at the technological changes in the Bronze Age (2300-800 BC) when copper, bronze and gold objects and weapons were first produced. Themes such as violence, the burial of the dead and the deposition of metal hoards will be discussed.

Lesson 5
The final week of the course will discuss the last period of British Prehistory, the Iron Age (800BC-43AD). The Celtic affiliation we often link with this period will be discussed along with the development of iron technology and the use of domestic areas for ritual. The shift into the Roman period will also be introduced to provide a full rounded introduction to British Prehistory.

About Me

I am passionate about teaching and engaging others in my interests and specialisms. My experience teaching primary, secondary, university students and adults has reinforced this. I want to help others reach their full potential.

Having recently finished my PhD in Archaeology, I am very aware of university expectations for students and I wish to use this with my teaching experience and geography, history and archaeology knowledge to help others through their studies.

My teaching method is centred around understanding and focus so that my students are able to reflect and engage with their learning. I engage my students with frequent questions and discussions to reveal their understanding of the topic and shape my lesson around their progress.

I also believe that it is important to use mixed media when teaching and break up the lessons by changing the teaching techniques.
For instance, a lesson may begin with an introductory statement and discussion with the pupil about the topic, this would be followed by a PowerPoint presentation. To renew the student's focus and concentration an activity, such as a quiz or game, will follow. After which, the lesson can continue with greater focus.

I have over three years of teaching experience. I have also had the pleasure of teaching Primary and Secondary school pupils history and archaeology through outreach events.

Whilst I was teaching at Newcastle University, I was observed and the results regarded me as a good teacher, at ease in the class environment with an ability to explain concepts in plain, accessible language, and to engage the students. I really enjoy teaching!

I have presented my research at numerous academic conferences and at public talks which have given me the skills to communicate with variable audiences orally and visually.

Moreover, I was recently employed as a Leisure Learning Tutor at City College Norwich where I taught a prehistory of the British Isle online course.

Support course, homework help or methodology
Currently a first year student of the International Master in Architecture at KU Leuven as well as a correspondence student in the second year of the Research Master in Philosophy, I propose to help your child with his homework (simple follow-up, methodological and editorial help etc.) and this at primary as well as secondary. I have been giving private lessons in France for 4 years and my university career has allowed me to acquire methodological skills in a large number of subjects: - Scientific Baccalaureate 2015 - Preparatory class for the grandes écoles (Letters / social sciences / mathematics) 2015 - 2017 / Under-eligible for the Normal Superior School - Double license (3rd year) Philosophy - Social Sciences (Paris I Sorbonne - Paris X Dauphine), mention Bien 2017 - 2018 - Bachelor of Architecture (2nd and 3rd year) National School of Architecture of Nantes, mention Bien 2018 - 2020 - Research Master in Philosophy by distance learning Paris IX Nanterre, 2019-2021 - International Master of Architecture KU Leuven, 2020-2022 I speak French (native), English (C1), Spanish (B2). My methodology evolves according to the needs and difficulties of the students. For fairly regular support, such as homework help, I usually set up a file writing system which allows students to structure their work and to be able to revise even after I have left. For more methodological advice I also adapt to the student. Thus, there may be joint writing or corrections of work done in class. On the other hand I am very available for my students, I respond quickly by email if necessary, I can also make corrections or revision documents from my home in order to complete the sessions with your child.

I am offering tutoring for subjects such as English, History and Politics with a particular emphasis on essays, applications and drafting skills. Formulating a written argument that is both succinct and coherent is a crucial skill for any discipline but it is especially useful for subjects such as english, history and politics. I believe that anybody is capable of writing well and my classes are designed to improve a student's structure, vocabulary and syntax. The class is designed for a broad range of students who may be looking for help on a particular project, application or simply want to improve their writing skills. My classes are not overly prescriptive and I am willing to adapt my teaching methods to a student's particular needs and objectives. Ultimately, my aim is for students to develop their writing skills and become stronger communicators.

Luca Dino
Italian, History, History of art and grammar teacher
Italian is a beautiful language, but like all languages, to learn it, you need to practice it with grammar exercises, reading, and above all, speaking. Through my lessons, you can learn through an alternative approach, deepening historical and cultural insights, and of course, grammar. My teaching philosophy is to be able to connect with students based on their passions. I can also offer lessons of history and history of arts since I hold a bachelor's degree in cultural heritage.

English, German and History Tutoring for Students in Primary and Secondary School
Hello! I'm an English student at the University of Luxembourg with the goal of becoming a teacher. I enjoy helping kids and teenagers become better at subjects they might be struggling with. By engaging the students directly and finding out their weak points as well as their strengths, I aspire to help them improve while also make their learning experience fun. As a young university student, I can empathize and communicate well with younger students especially. I offer lessons in English, German, history and maths for students in primary schools, as well as English, German and history on secondary school level. I'm available in the evenings, weekend and earlier in the day if it is required. I can do online lessons, as well as lessons at your place if you live in the south of Luxembourg.

Shakshi
Social Science for Class IX & X (CBSE)- anyone who is struggling to grasp the concepts, this class is for you.
Social Science is the building block of any student's learning career because it opens many avenues of experience. Having done bachelors in Social Science myself, I am more than eligible for taking this class. The class would not be very strict but would be a learning curve for those who want to pursue social sciences further. The class would be a give and take relationship, wherein both student and teacher contribute into getting a desired and optimum result. Thank you.

World History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed history and historiography from high school, where I received top marks, through university, where we studied history from Australia, the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class, European male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective. I try to bring this knowledge to the classroom, to help the student understand history contextually and how it is shaped through an interplay of individual personalities and social, economic and political trends. I work to include as much primary evidence as possible and always encourage students to approach both primary and secondary sources critically, considering the bias and intention of the source. If I'm not familiar enough with the particular aspect of history the student is studying, I will do the necessary research to be able to help them competently. I really enjoy history and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.
