Caveperson Days! or Way Back When

I have just discovered that one of my favourite Sesame Street sketches is widely available to watch online.

Sometimes called Caveperson Days, sometimes Caveman Days, the Sesame Street team have a lot of fun with furs, ug-speak and anachronisms. So suspend your archaeological knowledge, and go and enjoy Bert and Ernie bickering in cave-speak.

Plus you learn how to cross the street safely.

Archaeological Oddities: Science Issue

Archaeological Oddities The Amesbury Archer's Tooth - Copy

This special edition of Archaeological Oddities was made in response to the Open Call for online comics made by the Newcastle Science Comic.

It was hard work condensing the information down onto one page, so I’m hoping that I’ve explained the science OK.

Archaeologist/ artist John Swogger was involved in the Asteroid Belter print comic produced for children visiting this year’s British Science Festival in Newcastle.

More news on our collaboration One Girl goes Hunting, coming soon…
