Young Archaeologists’ Club leader (Ages 10-16) Woodland Heritage Festival, May 2015

“What an amazing time we had! Firstly we had our very own guide of the site and activities… We all enjoyed having a go at making small pots with clay… and saw demonstrations of metalworking. We looked at animal and human bones, had fun sealing an experimental Q-Pit with mud and making our own charcoal, and enjoyed the medieval music and singing . We were given a piece of iron ore from the experimental forge and we’ll use it in our next visit to Wincobank Hill Fort in June”
