Changing our view of the Stone Age...

We’ve just embarked on one of our most exciting projects yet — building a 5,000 year-old Stone Age structure with some of the most incredible and unique evidence we’ve ever seen.

Could this change the way our visitors (and maybe even our archaeologists) see the Stone Age?

Follow the construction of this incredible building from start to finish, and help directly fund the project, by signing up as a supporter today!

A Neolithic shrine?

Near two wood henges and with traces of paint on the walls, could this building have been a shrine?

Cutting-edge research

We'll be following archaeological evidence to test the limits of Neolithic tools and techniques

Unique evidence

This site boasts tantalising clues, which we'll be following to bring the structure to life

Funding local timber

We’re hoping to raise £200 to help fund the locally-sourced timber we’re using for the project.

We’ll be using a mix of ash, cherry, oak, and hazel wood in the build. They’re all native trees and will be sustainably sourced by local woodsmen.

Although it’s called the Stone Age, it’s wood that’s the real star. Almost every part of this building will be made out of wood, so we need lots of it!

Sourcing the right wood is really important for this experiment — and getting it the right way is equally important. We hope you’ll join us for this experiment!
