Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th May
from 10 a.m.
Discover just how clever the Iron Age Crannog dwellers were in this day of discovery.
Explore the technologies of the Iron Age:
Experience the innovative development of metals, play with clay and help to build a giant wind-chime and taste some of the lost foods of prehistory!
The bridge that connects communities 2500 years apart
Building the giant wind-chime is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund for our 2019 music project and is inspired by the crannog and the lyre bridge. Also an opportunity to learn about wood-working in prehistory and to have a go at wood-turning on our new replica pole-lathes kindly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of our 2019 music project focused around two wooden finds from our collection, the lyre bridge and the whistle. Let's put the music back into the crannog!
