Shetland skills

Fire-making, ancient archaeology and "clippit cloots" needlework feature in the continuing programme of events and workshops being held at the new Shetland Museum and Archives during September. On September 15-16, ancient and modern survival skills sessions will show teenagers and adults how to make fire, use stone tools and make rope to use for shelter and nets skills that our ancient ancestors taught themselves, but which could also come in handy these days in a desperate situation. The free drop-in film shows for September (Wed-nesdays and Sundays at 2.15, 3.15 and 4.15) is the 30-minute BBC production The Tower People of Shetland, which asks what sort of community built the brochs at Scatness and Mousa, and why?
