Walking through Time with Ken Sloan

Written by The Reader, 10th February 2015

We were pleased this Saturday to welcome back a long standing supporter of our work at Calderstones - Ken Sloan.

Ken is a local environmental historian who has led numerous popular 'time walks' around the park.  His expertise in prehistoric Liverpool is formidable and he can lead you though the landscape of Calderstones as it was 4,000 years ago.

Ken is a keen enthusiast of the past and brought along some excting examples of prehistoric artifacts including a neolithic stone axe, barbed flint arrow heads and a replica clay urn - designed to look like the ones that were found in Wavertree over 100 years ago.

It's likely that similar urns were buried in the Calder Stones for the cremated remains of Bronze age people living in this area 3000 years ago.

If you want to see the original urns they are on display at The Museum of Liverpool: Free to visit!

After a brief talk about the stone-age, Ken took our intrepid visitors on a somewhat muddy but enjoyable romp through the fields of the park eventually finishing by the Calder Stones themselves.
