About

Join Dr. James Dilley on a flintknapping workshop to make your own Stone Age tool! Stone tool making represents some of the first and longest-lasting technology in the human timeline. But was it really a primitive skill? Could you have survived in the Stone Age?

Whats an Experimental Archaeologist? Visit the AncientCraft zone to meet some and find out about their research into prehistoric hunting, lifestyle and crafts. Watch ‘fire’ being made the Neanderthal way and discover how our Palaeolithic cousins were actually far more intelligent than most think! Handle real prehistoric artefacts and find out how archaeologists unlock clues to the past by studying objects that can be hundreds of thousands of years old!
