Saxon Kings and Ice Age Magic – Archaeology-Inspired Storytelling for Families

May 26 @ 17:00 - 19:00 UTC+2
Mammoth bones, human skulls, a glorious helmet buried in an ancient ship… Imagine what stories these ancient treasures might tell us if they had a voice!
Join us in Butser’s Great Roundhouse for an afternoon of incredible, imaginative storytelling, bringing to life some of the most extraordinary archaeological finds from the distant past. Anthropologist and TV presenter Mary-Ann Ochota (Time Team, Mystic Britain) and award-winning storyteller Jason Buck weave vivid, original tales around four amazing finds, and share the real archaeology behind these discoveries.
Gods and magic, hunting and history, these tales are based in real 21st Century archaeological science and breathe life back into the distant past, bringing a voice to ancient people whose names are now lost to time. Entertaining, intriguing, and occasionally bizarre, this is a unique journey through 15,000 years of British archaeology.
Adults £18, Children £10
