Get me all technical and modern with an infographic!
As part of my continuing work with the ‘Life in the Mesolithic project’ I was really happy when Emily Hellewell asked me to do some drawing for the kids worksheets. I was commissioned to draw the inside of a hut or dwelling so the kids could colour it in! and camp site for the kids to find flints in. I knew it was going to be a bit of a challenge with lots of interpretive traps that I desperately didn’t want to get caught in! So I stuck to what I thought were the ‘safe’ bits of the Mesolithic! I really like the end result and I hope the kids do too! These drawings will now form part of an activity pack, developed by Emily Hellewell and a team of students from York University, that will teach 8-16year olds all about the Mesolithic. The resource pack will be freely available to download, and links to this resource will be posted once it has been fully published. Can you spot all 15 flints around the camp site???
Whist I was still a student at Reading I kept up my love of drawing and I just wanted to show one of the pencil drawings that I produced of a roundhouse from a picture I took at the peat moors centre. The finished drawing is on the right and I’ve also put up the work in progress and the photograph of the roundhouse.
