Ancient Craft

What are the origins of bushcraft? And what do we know today about our prehistoric ancestors who developed these skills? In the Ancient Craft zone you can discover that foundation of skills and how we know so much through archaeology. James Dilley and his team of archaeologists and prehistoric crafts people will be showcasing some of those vital skills and knowledge that allowed people to survive through some of the harshest conditions thrown at humans. James believes strongly in using archaeological evidence to help paint an accurate picture of life in prehistory. There will be a living history camp attached where you can immerse yourself in life thousands of year ago.

We’ve invited a number of other craftspeople to develop the prehistoric theme, and are extremely excited at how this is developing for 2019.
