Fire Lighting & Water Purification – Dunwich Heath

£30.00

(Price Shown Per Person)

Half the struggle is understanding what gives fire life, the other half is understanding how to source suitable materials to make it. If you can make fire, you can cook food, purify water to keep hydrated, make tools, create light, make a settlement just like the Anglo-Saxons did. Remember, knowledge you can carry everywhere, a lighter you can’t!
