I’ve had a great time over the past few weeks at Creswell.
This has included spending time with a school group; hoping to inspire the nex generation of palaeolithic archaeologists!
Maria Smith (Creswell curator) dressed up as a cave woman to keep them entertained and told a great story about the domestication of the wolf and defeating a hungry cave lion.
The children seemed entranced by Maria’s excellent performance as she professed no knowledge of concepts like ‘television’ and ‘houses’; even I was taken in!
I look forward to my last few days at Creswell working on the significance review of the comparative anatomy collection, having gained many skills and contacts to take with me back to Manchester.
