Join prehistoric technology tutor Mark Havey to experience prehistoric life for a day and a night in the unique environment of Butser Ancient Farm.

This hands-on workshop involves an introduction to a wide range of ancient technologies and skills. You will be doing and making, not merely watching. Your ancient skills will be:

Flint knapping

Fire lighting

Cordage (twine) making

Plant glue use – all of which are Stone Age technologies

Saturday culminates with you using your new skills to create an effective flint-headed spear and hatchet. You will also be doing your own food preparation and cooking over an open fire, using basic ingredients provided and your own recipe ideas.
