The Ancient Technology Centre has developed a unique program of hands on learning for children of all ages.
We believe that children should explore their surroundings, environment and history through an exciting blend of full scale building projects and traditional skills and crafts. Our starting point is archaeology and this informs the many buildings and activities that we offer.
Our goal is to enable children to genuinely experience aspects of daily life in the past, we encourage hard work, sweat and blisters in the context of seasonal and sustainable practice, the results of this hard work is plain to see.
We are now making an effort to open our amazing site to the public and we hope to see you soon!

Fairytales for Grown-ups, by Sally Pomme Clayton & Ben Haggarty
Enter a firelit theatre inside a hill for a night of dark and magical transformations. Allow yourself to be lured into the evocative world of grown-up fairytale, filled with power struggles, alchemy, stolen children, bizarre marriages and unflinching metaphor.

I don't use the word lightly”
