Education loan boxes available for free

A new series of education loan boxes, covering eras from prehistory to the early medieval period, is being made available free of charge to schools and youth groups by Northumberland National Park Community Archaeology.

The boxes bring history to life for young minds, with replicas of ancient artefacts, real archaeological tools, and scale models of ancient sites within the North Pennines and Northumberland National Park.

Written for Key Stages 2 and 3, these resources aim to give teachers local case studies, information on the latest archaeological research and thinking, contact details for hands-on heritage demonstrators in our area, as well as fun activities for teaching the fascinating history and archaeology of the region.
