Through reconstruction or living history role-play, we aim to discover how our Mesolithic ancestors procured and processed materials, such as creating tar or clothing fibres.
We investigate the techniques that Prehistoric people used to create tools, clothes, and other resources, and learn the bushcraft skills they would have used for navigation and tracking.
