Ancient Arts has over 20 years of experience working with the media.  


Shooting an ancient technology film for the Mellor Archaeological Trust.

Filming at the Ancient Arts  studio.


In recent years we have also developed our own film unit, which produces short films to demonstrate our archaeological reconstructions, record our experimental work and bring ancient technologies and skills to a wide audience.

We have also made replicas of artefacts using original techniques on the sites on which they were found; such as this tankard made on screen for the Time Team.
