Proving in Progress

The first flours have been ordered, a baking stone has been bought; the first workshop booked at the museum, and Neolithic baking day arranged.

We are jiggling the historical order around, due to a failed crop last year which means some flours will not be available until later in the year.

The first workshop looks at Stone Age to Iron Age, which covers three of the eras we will bake for.

So far, the Neolithic, Iron Age and Anglo-Saxon flours are here, and the Roman flour is on order. The Bronze Age is one of the flours out of stock.

The first baking day is at the end of the month and I have been unable to find an actual recipe for the Neolithic bread, so before baking day I will be experimenting with flour:water ratios and baking methods/temperatures… I’m sure success will be very mixed!
