Skara Brae - A Stone Age Village
Year 3 have been immersed in the Stone Age and the village of Skara Brae.
Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands is a village of ten one-roomed houses built between 2,500 and 2,000 years ago.The site was first unearthed in 1850, after a storm exposed some of the ruins.
We know the houses at Skara Brae used a clever drainage system and even had their own toilets. The homes also had beds, chairs, dressers and cupboards, although no windows.
The people who lived in the settlement raised cattle and sheep, and also ate a lot of seafood in their diet.
Hundreds of artifacts have been found at Skara Brae, including knives, rope, small bowls, ivory pins and decorative beads.
With all this knowledge and more, Year 3 split into groups and made their very own information posters. Their finished posters are fantastic!
