Pottery was first made in Britain 6000 years ago.

This new material would have a radical effect on how people lived their lives. You will be able to handle replicas of bowls made by people that lived back in the Neolithic period of the stone age.

You will then be challenged to make your own Neolithic bowl with help from experienced potters and archaeologists. If you were a hunter-gatherer or an early farmer, how do you think using pottery would have changed how you lived?
