I’m Flo, and I’m Alfie and we’re here at Grime’s Graves in Norfolk to meet Will Lord who is a prehistoric survival expert. We’ve got lots of questions to ask him about what life would have been like in the Stone Age. – Hello! – Hello! welcome to my cave! – Do you live this way all the time? – No, unfortunately I don’t I’m a Homo sapiens sapiens just like you – When did you start being interested in the Stone Age? – I was 5 years old and my family moved here to take care of Grime’s Graves. Pretty much from day one I started getting into the skills that used to be used on the site here. – How do we know what we know about Neolithic people? – Ah, well this all comes down to the great art of archaeology and one thing that can never rot away are the stones themselves. You only need to go to a molehill and you’ll be able to find things like that part of a flint tool which was just picked up here yesterday – Why is Grime’s Graves so special? and why is it called Grime’s Graves? – Grime’s Graves is special because it’s a group of ancient flint mines from the Neolithic period and it’s called Grime’s Graves because of the ancient Anglo-Saxon god called ‘Grim’ The Anglo-Saxons named it after him – How did the miners see what they were doing down the pits? – Well it looked a lot different then because it didn’t have a big concrete cap on the top and you notice how white the chalk is? well that meant that as they were carving through it was very bright and white – Where did they sleep and where did they go to the toilet? – I think that they would cover themselves in skins stretched out on skin in a frame that would be a great place to sleep but regarding going to the toilet you just do what the animals do where ever you need to go, thats where you go! – Have you been to any other Neolithic sites around the world? – I have been but one of the most special ones that I’ve been to is Stonehenge, and do you know I actually believe that some of the axes that came from here actually helped to build Stonehenge? – What’s the funniest prehistoric joke you know? – What do prehistoric people like to do in the evening? – I don’t know – We go out clubbing! sorry about that..

  1. Loved this playlist but can someone do one on what was there between the Neolithic Period and Romans? The Celts, the Picts and the Gaelics?
