Across the first weekend of September (next Saturday) the English Heritage site will be giving visitors an insight into some of the first ever meals tasted at the stones.

The Neolithic event will begin on Saturday, September 1, from 9.30am, and flints, roasting spits and stews will be just some of the historic touches to the feast, with celebration foods that have not been seen or tasted for around 4,500 years, including historical dish roasted pork shoulder with honey and blackberries.

Food demos will be held at the event so visitors can learn for themselves how to make a successful Neolithic dish, demonstrated with prehistoric- style cook-ware, and recipe cards will be provided so meals can be replicated within the home for years to come.

For those with a big appetite, history – inspired goods including a hog roast will be available during the weekend, or visit the Neolithic supermarket to learn about the early foods and farming industry.

Additionally experts will be giving talks throughout the foody festivities, teaching about the world of farming and the diets of ancestor builders.

Entry to the weekend is included in a general admission ticket, with local resident pass holders and English Heritage and National Trust England members invited to come along free of charge.
