Our activity day at King’s Manor on Sat 21st July was a huge success!
We had over 200 parents and children visit us and they were treated to 6 exciting Mesolithic inspired activities. The feedback that we received was excellent and you can read the report on our Events page.
The activities that we were showcasing will be incorporated into an activity resource pack for teachers, parents and YAC Branches and will be ready to download from this webpage later in the year.
If you would like to know more about this project or want to join our mailing list please email Emily Hellewell via the Contact page.
Emily and Ben will be appearing on BBC Radio York this afternoon, to talk about all things Mesolithic and promote our activity day at King’s Manor on Saturday.
We had a brilliant time with the young people, getting them to paint and make casts of their feet, helping them to make Mesolithic-inspired fish traps and demonstrating the effects of isostatic uplift to them, all whilst teaching them about what life was like in the Mesolithic.
A team of researchers from the University of York are working with the Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) to create a pack of activity ideas, resources and useful information all about life in the Mesolithic.
We are currently developing the activities which will be the main part of our project. The resource pack will be available on here later in the year.
