A Stone Age Fashion Guide for KS2 Students

Updated: Aug 28


Unlike Hollywood would like to have us believe, Stone Age people did not go around wearing fur undies and little else!

It was very cold during this era thanks to plentiful ice Ages, so prehistoric fashionistas would be clad head to toe in warm fur, just make sure you clean the animal’s hide out first – icky!


Survival was very difficult in the Stone Age, but that didn’t mean ancient humans only wanted to wear boring furs – they wanted to look good too!

Around 75,000 years ago humans had made the first necklaces by stringing together shells.

They didn’t stop there, soon animal bones would be used to make jewellery too.
