It’s Our Birthday!
18 April 2023
It’s our birthday! We’ve officially been making videos on Butser Plus for two years now — how time flies!
To celebrate, in this update we’re looking back at some of our most exciting projects and videos from the past two years. Here’s to many more to come!
Of course, absolutely none of this would be possible without you. Your support makes such a difference, and we’re so grateful that we get to do these amazing projects and share them with you like this. Truly, thank you!
Weaponsmithing through the ages
Ancient weapons are cool, but you know what’s cooler? How they were made, and how they were wielded. We’ve been lucky enough to explore these two things in quite a few videos! These are just three of many — have you seen them all yet?
Our best experiments...
How was Stonehenge made? Can a Roman hypocaust properly heat a room in winter? And can archaeology help improve mental health?
The time traveller's guide to the Iron Age
Quick, you’ve woken up in the Iron Age — what do you do? What do you wear? What kind of food should you expect, and how can you cook it? Watch this series to find out! We love how these videos turned out 😊
Meet the experts!
We’re on the cutting edge of what we do, and there’s nothing we love more than sitting down with others at the peak of their field. We’ve been so lucky to chat with so many fascinating people; here are just three of our favourites!
