25 Oct 2017 - 1:00pm

Venue: ECR


Come and try your hand at one of the main (and best-preserved) technologies of our ‘Ice Age’ ancestors: making and using stone tools. We will demonstrate how to produce tools such as knives and scrapers – and then it is over to you to make your own tools and then use them to shape and sharpen a digging stick or a spear.

This event is linked to the Community Case display Earliest Europeans: How Did Our Ancestors Survive?, in association with the University of Reading Archaeology Department.


Ages 9+


30-minute sessions starting at 1pm, 1.45pm, 2.30pm & 3.15pm
