LGfL launches new augmented-reality prehistory resource
New to the National Curriculum in 2014 is prehistory, which has never formally been taught at primary level before. This presents a unique challenge to teachers, as it spans a vast period of time (800,000 years), and unlike many other eras, is largely lacking in incontrovertible evidence for approximately 98% of the timeline.
