Description

Little Story Telling Company presents:

DNA Detectives: The Stone Age

Learn how forensic archaeologist piece together historic clues in this fascinating FREE workshop for children from the Little Story Telling Company.

Excavate a ‘grave’ and work out from the bones and artefacts the age of the skeleton, what the dead person did for a job and how he or she died. Use DNA to see if our skeleton has modern day descendants. This workshop is based on the real-life story of the Amesbury Archer, an early bronze age man whose body was found near Stonehenge in 2002.

Amanda Hartley, who runs the Little Story Telling Company, has a PhD in Genetics and has spent 15 years working with DNA. Amanda, who is from Norfolk, is a STEM Ambassador and regularly runs workshops in schools and with youth groups.

Workshop places are limited and should be booked via Eventbrite. Other children can watch, listen and learn; the workshops take place in The Forum’s open Atrium space and Amanda will be including the ‘audience’.

   

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
