Peter Groom and Reaseheath College have been part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Hidden Heritage of Hednesford Hills project. They have developed a programme for young people to learn the skills of cordage, bead making, tool making and fire lighting.

For the Festival of British Archaeology 2017 the museum held an event showing off the work achieved in the project. Visitors learnt about the changing face of the landscape and took part in some of the crafts and skills that the young people had learnt about.


Peter and the New Mesolithic Resource Group will be leading a ten week adult experimental archaeology course starting in January 2018 at the museum. It will take place every Monday from 8th January between 7 and 9 pm at the total cost of £150. 01543 877666.
