So there have been some adjustments to the schedule due to the weather – this weekend we’ll be flint knapping, and the brewing and pottery days have been pushed back a week accordingly.
Come and see experimental archaeology in action!
19th June – Flint Knapping
Learn the basics of creating stone tools (like those discovered on-site) using flint and obsidian.
26th June – Prehistoric Beer Brewing
Learn the process of prehistoric beer brewing!
3rd July – Prehistoric Pottery
Using local materials procured from ongoing excavations, we will attempt to make small pottery pieces!
10th July – Beer Decanting/TBA
If the beer has fermented sufficiently, we’ll be decanting our brew and testing the ABV (and sampling it!)! If the beer isn’t ready there may be a day of flint knapping.
17th July – Woodworking
Learn the basics of rudimentary woodworking.
24th July – Resin Production/Hafting
We hope to create resin and use it to haft tools that we’ve made during the season.
**Activities are subject to change depending on weather conditions & ability to procure materials and/or resources**
We welcome local volunteers and community members, but for logistic purposes, please let us know ahead of time if you wish to drop by!
