Stone Age Day (October 2019)
We had a fantastic day dressed up as Neanderthals from the Stone Age with Urduck, our guide from Portals to the Past. We learnt about the history of man and our evolution from apes; how to safely go hunting and gathering; and also how to mine for copper when we eventually reached the Iron and Bronze Ages. We had great fun playing an assortment of games- hunting the mammoth, gathering fruits, and throwing a spear at a reindeer (no animals were harmed!) We handled some incredible artefacts which were hundreds of years old such as a piece of quern, a needle made from bone and lots of animal skin. What a great day!
