Lapworth and Creswell Crags Ice Age Adventure

Family Fun (Online) - Life in the Ice Age: A Mammoth Adventure

Travel back with us, to a time when mammoths marched across the landscape and humans were making their mark in Britain. In this 40 minute talk, the Lapworth Museum have partnered with Creswell Crags Museum to bring you an exciting talk about Ice Age Britain. Learn how Ice Age Britain and Europe were different to what we see today, how giant ice sheets form, and discover some of the amazing ancient discoveries made at Creswell Crags!

Creswell Crags Tucked away in the countryside of the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, Creswell Crags is an archaeological site of national importance.  The striking limestone gorge is an Ice Age time capsule, with numerous caves revealing fossils of animals like woolly mammoths and cave hyenas, and tools of the Neanderthals and humans who once sheltered there.  Alongside hints at how people survived in an extreme and changeable climate, archaeologists have also found wonderful examples of cave art from around 13,000 years ago, illustrating the creative side of these resilient Ice Age pioneers.
