Ancientcraft is dedicated to the archaeology of primitive crafts and technologies that encompass three prehistoric ages: STONE; BRONZE and IRON. This includes working with natural materials like flint, wood, bone, leather, ceramics, metals, fibres and wools. My outreach objective is to encourage people of all ages to learn about long-lost crafts by bringing back to life our ancestors skills and knowledge from the primitive past.

James Dilley is a PhD student at the University of Southampton, a craftsman and re-enactor who specialises in all prehistoric technologies. I have worked with museums, heritage centres, media (Time Team; Coast; National Geographic; The Great British Countryside, New Scientist Live), publishers, photographers, schools and geologists in research and experimental archaeology.
