Star Carr: Life after the ice

Opens 22 March 2024

Included in general admission

Discover what human life was like 11,000 years ago, a few hundred years after the last Ice Age, through an exciting and interactive new exhibition Star Carr: Life after the ice which brings together wonderful artefacts from one the most famous Mesolithic sites in the world.

Step back in time to the settlement at Star Carr in North Yorkshire and delve into how people settled, created, cooked and worshipped during the Mesolithic period (Middle Stone Age).

Explore the landscape they lived in through an interactive mural and soundscape and take a look at the incredible objects from the Yorkshire Museum Collection; including iconic antler headdresses, a unique, decorated stone pendant, the world’s oldest complete hunting bow and the earliest evidence of carpentry from Europe.

Our younger visitors can also follow the story of Star Carr through the eyes of a friendly dog who lived with the people by the lake!

We also have an exciting programme of events running alongside the exhibition, which are included in your general admission ticket.
