Adventures in the Stone Age


What kind of world did we live in 40,000 years ago? How did we survive towards the end of an ice age, with technologies based upon stone, wood, antlers, bones and fire – and upon human ingenuity?! This interactive and hands-on session examines the time frame of the Palaeolithic era and considers climate, geography and lifestyles – before history began!
