Welcome to the Ancient Technology Centre

The Ancient Technology Centre (ATC) is primarily a historically based activity centre for children accessed via school visits.  The ATC has developed a unique program of hands on learning for children of all ages. We believe that children should explore their surroundings, environment and history through an exciting blend of full scale building projects and traditional skills and crafts. Our starting point is archaeology and this informs the many buildings and activities that we offer.  Our goal is to enable children to genuinely experience aspects of daily life in the past, we encourage hard work, sweat and blisters in the context of seasonal and sustainable practice, the results of this hard work is plain to see.


We are open to the general public on specific dates throughout the year when we hold historical related events, usually  on weekends. Please check the Public Events page for more details.


We look forward to seeing you soon!
