Delve Into The Stone Age


We are Outback2basics, Naomi and Dan. Authors of award winning books 'Forest school adventure’, 'Urban forest school and 'Live like a Hunter gatherer'. We starred in channel 4’s award winning 3 part documentary “Surviving the Stone” and we can’t wait to join you all at Camp Bestival!


Dressed in our full Stone Age outfits we’ll show you the skills and crafts of ancestors. We’ll let you touch the obsidian blades, explore the flint and bone tools and dress you up in all our furs and clothes of the past. We even have a real mammoth tooth to show you!


We’ll teach you how to create vivid paints, natural paintbrushes and beautiful cave art, make simple stone tools to turn into arrows, show you how to turn clay into a fat lamp and many more exciting primitive crafts. We’ll also share with you real life stories of us bow hunting, sleeping in caves, spear fishing and more! Delve deep into the stone age with us, and whatever your age, ignite your inner cave child!
