Learn how to handle the tools to make fire by friction and percussion

The fire and the development of Prehistoric Man are inseparable. The domestication of fire dates back about 450,000 years.

An activity for everyone which consists in demonstrating by gestures, the old techniques of starting a fire by friction but especially by percussion.

At the end of the workshop, those who wish (and from 6 years old) can test the fire techniques.
