The camp entitled ‘500 BC Holiday Club’ is run by archaeologist Kim Biddulph and teacher and crafter Anna Pool and so far this week the children have learned about fire-making (captured here by our photographer Derek Pelling) and how to build their own shelters.

For the rest of the week, children will learn about making an arrow or knife out of flint, cooking on fires and tracking animal prints.

This week’s camp is fully booked but for details on future holiday events visit https://500bc.org/
