An interview with real life stone age man, Will Lord

MEET A REAL-LIFE STONE AGE MAN AT GRIME'S GRAVES

We sent English Heritage Members Flo and Alfie Tyrrell to Grime’s Graves, a neolithic flint mine in North Norfolk, to meet prehistoric survival expert Will Lord and learn all about what life was like for the people who lived here in the Stone Age.

Watch the video to discover how Grime’s Graves got its name, how the miners saw what they were doing underground, where the prehistoric people slept and where they went to the toilet. Will even tells his favourite prehistoric joke!
