In this Neolithic session, archaeologist Dr John Piprani will give a short introduction to the period and the role of pottery in helping archaeologists understand more about past lifeways.

The Neolithic is the period when farming arrived in Britain. Grooved Ware is characteristic of the later Neolithic period in Britain. Experimental potter, Juan Ignacio Jiménez, will lead us through the process of making our own Grooved Ware pot. We'll use this session to explore what experimental archaeology can and cannot tell us about past processes and people. The session will end with us sharing our insights.

This series of events has been facilitated by the University of Manchester 'Creative Manchester' initiative. We aim to film part of this event.
