THE FIRST FORESTERS

Matt Ritchie takes us behind the scenes on a new project that links our ancient wildwood with Neolithic pioneers, providing teachers and archaeological educators with a means of sharing the past with a young audience
The project draws on the work of leading archaeologists to imagine a Neolithic of wood rather than stone

The First Foresters combines an inspirational blend of archaeological discussion, creative indoor activities and practical outdoor learning through a beautifully illustrated booklet that links today’s native woodlands, the ancient wildwood of the past and the Neolithic pioneers who ventured into it. It is a fresh take on the presentation and interpretation of our ancient past and is aimed at teachers, youth group leaders, archaeological educators and anyone interested in our native woodlands.

The authors wanted to step beyond the familiar stone circles of Scotland’s prehistory to explore the archaeology of our lost timber halls and timber circles. Using quotes spread throughout the text – different voices to emphasise key ideas – we drew on the work of leading archaeologists to describe a very different Neolithic – one not of stone but of wood.
