There were lots of exhibits to explore and the English Heritage demonstrators showed the children different stone age objects which they were allowed to handle. The children also got to explore the replica stone age round houses.

After lunch the children were met by their guides for the afternoon.  A bus took them out on to Salisbury Plain so they could get close to Stonehenge itself.  The guide explained how the monument was built and showed the children the things that would have been put into the barrows with the important people who were buried there.
