Specialist Dr. James Dilley produces replicas from the European Stone Age and Bronze Age for private collections, museum displays, TV props and educational handling sessions. Ancient Craft prides itself on its historical accuracy, therefore each replica has been carefully researched and expertly reproduced based on archaeological evidence.


Age  replicas

AncientCraft’s Bronze Age Replicas are based on existing examples, often using original artefacts to ensure they are as close to the originals as possible. Bronze replicas will be supplied fresh out the mould (not cleaned) and not work-hardened.

If you have a specific replica you require that is not listed on the AncientCraft shop, please let us know.

"James was extremely knowledgeable and excellent working with the children. He set out a lovely display of furs and tools and talked to the children before they started knapping. He was extremely patient and the children all thoroughly enjoyed the session, everyone took away a knapped piece of flint which resembled a tool. Excellent value for money and would recommend him to other groups and schools."
