Here historical expert Martin Patterson shares his vast knowledge of the Stone Age Hunter Gatherer period. His passion and skill is obvious as he shows us a range of replica tools and equipment he has fashioned from natural materials including a flint-headed axe, a scythe from deer antler, a fire-hardened digging stick and a range of spears for hunting - explaining how these would have been used and maintained in the Stone Age. Martin shows us needles from bone; how pine resin, soot and bees wax can make a sort of glue and how stinging nettle fibre would have been used like string to make trapping nets. He stresses the importance of looking after the natural environment - then and now - to encourage new growth and to ensure a regular harvest. http://www.handsonhistory.co.uk/.
