After the ice: Yorkshire's prehistoric people

June 13 - 29, Yorkshire Museum

Eleven thousand years ago at Star Carr, near Scarborough, mesolithic people lived, hunted and worshipped. They built Britain’s oldest known house and wore deer skull headdresses to hunt or to worship unknown Gods. Some of the most remarkable and complete finds from the site are brought together for the first time in this special exhibition.
