a closer look at....
The pages in this
section are very graphic heavy, there are animated pictures
and regular ones, Hopefully you will gain a better knowledge
of these items as you can see them close up. Have a
look and see what you think. Each animated picture will
stay for 10 seconds, and they are continuously going
through the photos so if you need more time to look
they will be coming around again in a short while. Please
don't think they aren't working, 10 seconds is longer
than we think!

These items were
found in the local area, and show that people lived
here many, many years ago.

More than one would be on the heat so that when one
cooled another hot one could be used.
