Kind of Event
Organised by
the Netherlands

During the prehistoric weeks you see how things were thousands of years ago! In the Mesolithic, the stories of the hunters and gatherers are told. At the first farmers you can twine a bracelet. The inhabitants of the Funnel Beaker farm make nettle tea that you can taste. In the Bronze Age there are demonstrations and it is shown which specific materials are used on the land. The Iron Age shows life from that time.

There will also be demonstrations by Jonathan Dymond, among others. An experimental archaeologist and teacher of prehistoric crafts from Devon, UK. He will demonstrate the use of flint snapping and the use of Stone Age tools.
