Good quality information on living in the past

Following a 'Viking Day' at school, kids asked us for some interesting stuff which is not in the general imagery, preferably good online material.
If you search, normally you get Wikipedia, BBC and Pinterest, all of varying quality of information. While archaeologists are arguing about authenticity and minimum reconstruction others step in and fill the void. Sometimes there is one article published and then it regurgitated everywhere or many sites depends on literature well past its date. For example, do you know that in Ancient Egypt women ground cereals for eight hours a day 356 days a year, for some 3 000 years with the same type of quernstone? That is from a permaculture lecture available on YouTube.
Could anybody add to accessible good quality information on living in prehistory to Middle Ages for general public?
