Abstract
I wanted to look at school-children's perspective of prehistory. I also wanted to look at the literature at their disposal, provided by the schools.

The essay is concentrated on prehistory and only at those two schools. My work has resulted in a rather peculiar observation. The literature was far more correct than the answers I got from the children. This proves that they have not grasped the information given to them by the teachers, or that the teachers themselves have misinterpretated the information. The children could also have recieved information from other sources that they perhaps have felt to be more reliable. This may or may not have been a deliberate choice, but the results are the same.
