About Timewalkers: Early Humans, Stone Tools and Environmental Change at Queen Mary Summer School

This module takes you on a journey through time to discover Britain’s Stone Age past. Using a mixture of classroom-based sessions, hands-on activities, museum visits and field excursions you will learn how archaeologists reconstruct past landscapes and understand the human populations that once inhabited these lost worlds. The module explores the first dispersals of humans across Europe; a remarkable story of survival in unfamiliar landscapes, where the challenges of changing climate, physical barriers and food and resource availability, tested human resilience to its limits. Located at the edge of this ice-age world, Britain uniquely documents these early inhabitants and their social, cultural and technological development.

    The course was structured in a very good way which was very helpful. The field trips were one of the best parts of the whole course. Studying something in theory and experience the practical side of it just gives you the perfect insight of your course. It was the best part and made things clear.
