Making Must Farm

Must Farm replicas
A selection of Must Farm replicas made by AncientCraft

We were lucky enough to be able to work with the fantastic AncientCraft to create a series of videos, Making Must Farm, detailing some of the settlement’s key artefacts and their recreation. Alongside the videos, the brilliant replicas are regularly taken into schools across the region to help connect new audiences to the Late Bronze Age and the value of archaeology.
