Media Appearances of our Stone Age Winter Experiment

Published on Mar 17, 2020 | Last updated on Mar 18, 2021

Hey friends! How are you? I really hope you are well and taking good care of yourself. Today, this will be a bit of a fun post as I’ll be sharing with you all about our tribe’s media appearances!

Curious journalists

During our time at Kierikki Stone Age Centre, we were visited by several local and national journalists who were very curious about what we were up to. As I mentioned in one of my previous blog posts, our aim was not only to experiment living as a Neolithic community in Winter conditions, but also to help promote Kierikki to a wider public. Therefore, we were happy to receive journalists around our fire hearth and answer to their questions.

We did our best to convey the message about the importance of places like Kierikki as centres for understanding our Ancestors (…) We also tried to show in a more practical way how seriously brilliant our Forebears were (…).

Video Appearances

Bellow I share three videos filmed by local online newspapers, one of them even broadcasted on national television. They show a glimpse of how we lived during our time in Kierikki and share some of the reasons for our experiment (and yes, we did eat the whole reindeer!).

Online news

If you’re interested, you can also read other articles we were featured in bellow. They are all in Finnish with the exception of the last one. However, you can always translate the text in Google Translator, if you’re curious to know more:

Small Disclaimer

I don’t know Finnish but I did my best to translate the online texts in order to understand what they say. As usual, some articles are more sensationalist than others, some more accurate in information than others. So take everything you read with a grain of salt and… enjoy 😁 ehehe

I really hope you had fun seeing all the pics and watching the videos about this Stone Age Winter Experiment! And please, don’t be shy! Feel free to interact with me on the comment section bellow 😊

So much love and take care, Filipa 🌙
