Dear Rachel,

I would like to say thank you for being our guide for the whole day on Tuesday when we came to visit Creswell Crags. You were such a good guide because you welcomed us nicely, you taught us a lot about things we didn’t know and showed us the difference between a Neanderthal skull and a human skull from today.

My favourite part of the day was den building and throwing spears at the reindeer because I found it quite easy. Our den was a little cramped but we all managed to squeeze in.

I also liked learning about the woolly mammoth and saw a real woolly mammoth tooth that was almost half a metre long! The journey inside the dark cave gave me an idea of what life may have been like in those days.

Digging in the sand searching for tools and bones made me feel just like an archaeologist and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to piece together all the bones to create a hyena skeleton.

This trip was so good that I never wanted to leave.

Yours sincerely,

Edward P 3F
