Neanderthal Creswell Crags with Rebecca Wragg Sykes
Sat, 21st Aug 2021
11:00 am - 4:30 pm
To celebrate the paperback release of the award-winning book Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art, Creswell Crags will be hosting a special “Neander-fest” with author Dr Rebecca Wragg Sykes.
Join Rebecca on two exclusive guided tours of the gorge where Neanderthals lived around 50,000 years ago, including special access to Pin Hole Cave.
Alongside this will be a talk followed by book signing, together with an object handling ‘show and tell’ from the museum’s collections. Book signings are available without a ticket or pre-booking, but to attend the tours of the gorge and a special look at Pin Hole Cave with Rebecca, places are strictly limited and you must book in advance.
The gorge tours will run at 12.30pm and 3pm and last for about an hour. Please make sure you note which time you have booked for. We will ask visitors to maintain a social distance of at least 1m from anyone not in their household or ‘bubble’ during the tour.
There will be a chance to talk to Rebecca and get your book signed alongside a close-up object ‘show and tell’ from 2:15 pm – 2:45 pm and 4 pm – 4:30pm.
You can purchase a ticket including a signed copy of the paperback book, or just purchase a ticket for the tour with Rebecca. All visitors who book a place on one of the exclusive gorge tours with Rebecca will also receive a voucher for a drink of their choice from our on site café.
