May 22nd to 26th 2021
PART 2 of The Old Way Immersion - THE RIVER
Paddle down the brackish waters of the estuary past bluebell woods and camp on the shore.
Harvest crabs, oysters and clams and graze on young beech leaves and wild garlic, cooking over a fire in the ancient way.
Deepen your ability to read the language of the birds at the height of the nesting season and so unlock the secrets of the landscape.
This is the perfect place to learn how to fish for estuarine species using ancient and modern methods.
Get used to spotting resources, mapping the landscape, and crafting on the move, so there's always cordage ready for fishing or lashing. Learn the art of net-making with experimental archaeologist Emily Fawcett and how to turn deerskin into soft buckskin with Jessie Watson-Brown.
