(12 Pages for 2.50)

Available Pictish Sheets

General Picts

Archaeology Sheet

This sheet describes a number of different fields and asks you to choose which ones you think would be most likely to have interesting archaeology hidden underground. It then asks you to decide which materials you would be most likely to dig up. Lastly you can draw the grass in on a cross-section to show how tall it grows over different features, forming lines seen on aerial photos.


Pictish Costume Sheet

This sheet shows the costumes of a tattooed Pictish man and lady. You are asked to compare them to where you live and what people wear today.


Pictish Finger Puppets Sheet

Make six of your very own Pictish warrior finger puppets with this easy-to-use cut-out sheet. 


Naked Pictish Warrior Sheet

This sheet shows a naked Pictish warrior, as described in Roman sources; but why would soldiers not get dressed to go into battle? Use the suggestions of areas to think about and fill in the advantages and disadvantages. 

Dark Age Venn Diagram Sheet

This sheet shows twelve different people from the Dark Ages. By looking at their costumes and weaponry, you must work out which person goes in which section of the triple-circle venn diagram on the next page. You can write their names onto the existing diagram or create a giant one, cut out the pictures and stick them on.

Not available as a free sample.

More Info

We have a wide range of British history activity sheets for kids available. They are very competitively priced and contain many more illustrations than other sheets on the market: all exclusive to Nash Ford Publishing. You can purchase them very cheaply in sets organised by subject. All sheets are shown and described above. Some are quick, some are longer and take more thought or involve making things. Most are single pages, but some are more. Some can be used straight off. Others are designed to be used after a little learning, which our Early British Kingdoms website can help with of course. All of them double as colouring sheets and will keep your pupils or children amused for hours. For activity sheets from other periods of British history, click here.
