Butser Farm Trip!

3/4 had an amazing trip this week to Butser Ancient Farm. First, we sat around a fire in a real Stone Age house! We knew straight away that this dwelling was from the Mesolithic period because we compared Stone Age homes at school. It really felt like we were in the Stone Age as we sat on a carpet of animal skins. We learnt how to make cordage which is a type of string that was invented during the Stone Age. Also, we weaved hazel trees to create a fence – this is called wattle. Finally, we worked like archaeologists digging up artefacts that gave us clues about the Stone Age time. Overall we had a fantastic time and learnt so much!
