Want to be part of something special? Would you like to help us celebrate the opening of the Neolithic trackway and platform reconstruction on Hatfield Moors?
There will be a special activity with children’s author (and one of the trackway team), Addy Farmer. We are looking for 10-15 school-aged children to take part in this fun words and pictures activity which will culminate in a first walk along the trackway!
The Neolithic Lindholme trackway and platform is the oldest known corduroy timber trackway and platform in Britain. At nearly 5,000 years old, the now scheduled monument was found in Humberhead Peatlands NNR (Hatfield Moors) and investigated archaeologically in 2004 to 2006.
A community of Stone Age builders formed in January 2019 and since then have been tirelessly working away on the 20 plus meter timber reconstruction. Volunteers have been busy felling and processing trees using traditional Stone Age tools and methods.
To help celebrate the many months of hard work and the completion of the project we would like to invite members of the community to join us. Working in partnership at the event is the UK’s most accurate and popular travelling Stone Age display by James Dilley’s Ancient Craft. You can watch crafts like flintknapping (making stone tools), have a go at polishing a stone axe or grinding some Neolithic grain (Einkorn).
If you would like to take part please get in touch with the project team on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01724 297536.
