Stone Age Technologies
September 7 - 15 2013
exciting 9 day event - 5 days of tuition followed by 3 of working on
the early stages of our unique Neolithic settlement, plus a day to
relax or work on your own project.
Will Lord, who, with his father, is the most
renowned flint snapper in Britain today, will be our tutor for two days of
flint knapping, two days of
pelt processing, and one day of
(See these pages for details). Although each course has a focus, a
huge range of stone age technologies will be covered over the five
days. Everything you make you will take home with you. Numbers on
these courses are kept low for plenty of time for individual tuition
so please book early to be sure of a place.

The second part of the
week will be a chance to get involved in the reconstruction of a
Neolithic structure. Weaving, daubing, thatching - we are not sure
what stage the building will have reached by September.
On Saturday we will do
some foraging for wild foods and the week will culminate in a stone
age feast where we will cook (our own meat) in an earth oven.
Sunday will be a chance
to relax, walk, explore our beautiful hills etc. before going home.
Fee for the week £400 which includes all
lunches, Saturday night meal, all materials.
