The Earth Museum: Before 1066

The Earth Museum aims to inspire the next generation of digital global citizens with life skills that help us to understand and look after our planet better. Their work blends local and global heritage connections with UN Sustainable Development Goals and world citizen voices to create entertaining place-based digital learning experiences.

The Museums and Schools partnership has commissioned a series of maps and teaching resources to help you explore the rich cultural heritage of the Island. Designed for KS2 and KS3 History, Geography, Science, Technology and Citizenship curriculum subjects, the ‘Before 1066’ map includes Prehistoric objects found across the Isle of Wight which may also help inspire learning at different stages.

Find out more on the Resources Introduction Page or go straight to the Explorer Map when you can toggle to just see Prehistoric objects.
