I have a range of experience in different technologies and materials. This is thanks in part to my personal interest in crafting, which led me to create pieces from antler, stone, leather, and metal as part of a small business for several years. It is also due to my specialisation in experimental archaeology.
Experimental archaeology is the replication or reproduction of objects, events, and activities from the past. By recreating these ourselves, we can gain a better understanding of the decision-making processes of people in past societies. It is the closest thing we have to a time machine! Archaeologists specialised in artefact and material analysis therefore often need to be able to make these objects and manipulate these materials themselves.
I can provide demonstrations and workshops in a range of prehistoric technologies using traditional tools and materials, both for educational and entertainment purposes.

- bags and pouches
