Prehistory in the Peak

Prehistory of The Peak - Stone Close

Introduction

A whole day tour travelling around the Peak District visiting some of the most interesting and indicative sites from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age. This tour will give a good grounding in these often tricky to grasp and vast periods of time.

Background

The Peak District is home to archaeological sites of all periods, and prehistory is no exception. With over 300 Bronze Age Barrows, its very own "Stonehenge of the North” and forts of the Iron Age, whose origins may go back into the Neolithic, all set within the landscapes of the UK’s first National Park, this will be a day to remember. Transport will be provided throughout the day, starting and finishing in Buxton.

When?

This tour is available on request. Please contact us if you have any questions or to make a booking. 

What Does The Day Involve?

You will be picked up from and dropped off at a central point in Buxton. We will then spend the day travelling through a landscape that has seen human activity over thousands of years, stopping at a number of sites and thinking about these questions: 

  • ​What’s the story here? 

  • How is this typical of the period in question?

  • How does this reflect the past?

  

Each day will have a maximum of 7 participants and will involve driving and walking short distances at each stop. 

 

We will stop at a pub for lunch en-route for you to enjoy our warm and welcoming Peak District hospitality.

The Cost

The cost for the day is £85 per person.

Tea, coffee and snacks are included in the price.

Lunch is not included.
