Discover how some the earliest metal tools were produced in prehistoric Britain. This workshop is led by experimental archaeologist James Dilley from the University of Southampton. Learn how to prepare your own mould, work the leather bellows on the charcoal fuelled furnace to melt copper and tin. Cast the liquid metal into moulds to produce a replica early bronze age axe head to take home at the end of the day. Lunch included.
