I'm after some support and networking from you all, on behalf of a very talented and clever friend.

One of my heroes of archaeology is the brilliant Jacqui Wood. Her ability to put herself into the mindset of our ancient ancestors has helped her to unlock many secrets and solve puzzles of the daily life of prehistoric Europeans.

Director of Saveock Water Archaeology, and founder of Cornwall Celtic Village, a reconstructed Bronze-Iron Age settlement, she's made many amazing discoveries over the years including a Bronze age bunsen burner used for soldering in jewellery-making.

She has published several papers in archaeology journals and conferences, and gave many lectures throughout Europe. She has also appeared on many TV programmes about prehistoric dwellings and cooking; you've probably seen her in Coast and also A History of Ancient Britain with Neil Oliver.

She also gave demonstrations of Bronze Age technology for English Heritage, researched the grass cloak of Ötzi the Iceman, as well as his shoes (which she believes are actually snowshoes), and made replicas of them for the Bolzano museum devoted to the mummy.

She also made a replica of the Orkney Hood (Britain’s oldest textile) for the Orkney Council, and replicas of various prehistoric dwellings.
You can read more about her work on her website here -

Jacqui has been writing a series of books based on life and culture in these ancient times, and just needs a little help to enable her to reach her target to get it to press. If you could have a look at her Crowdfunding page, I'd be grateful. If you can't contribute, please share!

I really want to see this in my bookshop. The series looks fantastic.
