The Stone Age & Stone Age Cooking

The Stone Age and Stone Age cooking programme introduces children to not only how people lived and survived this period of history, but also how we can learn from their culinary skills, even today. They will discover examples of some of the foods that were gathered, grown or caught and how it was prepared and cooked through a 'hands-on' demonstration and exploration of tools and artefacts.
