Our favourite part of the annual Woodland Heritage Festival is the exciting interactive experimental archaeology that we get to share with you. Normally, we’re making objects, forging metals and discovering Ecclesall Wood’s historic landscape. Although we can’t be there in person, we have instead created two fantastic videos for you.
