    Comb making workshop

    Wood was one of the most important materials during the stone age. Nevertheless, there are much more archaeological finds made of stone, because organic materials need to be conserved under special conditions to outlast for so many time. In this workshop you will learn to make a wooden comb, similar to those used at the time of the Iceman.
