Mystic Britain: EPISODE 8
Ice Age Shaman
Yorkshire, England. A town known for its pudding, cricket, and--so it seems--Mesolithic shamans. Clive Anderson and anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota examine a treasure trove of ancient wonders found at an archaeological site in Star Carr, including headdresses, tools, and weapons made from deer skulls, bones, and antlers. They also find evidence of the oldest houses ever built in Britain, proving that our 11,000-year-old Ice Age ancestors were a lot more sophisticated than previously believed.
