Celtic Harmony Stone Age Day

Year 3 recently visited Celtic Harmony in Brickendon to attend a series of Stone Age workshops. The day began with the children bargaining to enter a fortress. It turned out to be full of all sorts of artefacts, including mammoth bones and teeth, and various stone items which had been knapped to form tools. They were lucky enough to be joined by a real-life Stone Age character, who despite appearances was very friendly. He showed the children how to make fire, using an improvised bow to create an ember. As this was fairly sophisticated they were right to guess that their new friend was from the Mesolithic Age. Year 3 built dens to keep dry and found out about the sorts of plants that Stone Age people could have foraged, and those they would have definitely left alone. We also took part in a hunt, traded, looked at Stone Age tools and even cooked. Everyone had a fantastic time!
