Explore the fascinating lives of prehistoric people in the Folkestone area, from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
Be inspired by some of the incredible artefacts they left behind: from Palaeolithic hand axes almost half a million years old, to a Bronze Age metal-workers hoard and exquisite items of Iron Age jewellery.
Discover the animals they hunted, how they became farmers, and built their homes using some surprisingly smelly ingredients.
Find out why the community at Folkestone’s East Cliff was so important in the Iron Age.
Learn about the work of archaeologists at Canterbury Archaeological Trust, and how ancient objects are conserved for future generations.
Not forgetting ... gold staters, quern stones, charred bones in pots… and the dog skull buried to guard an Iron Age round house.
