Playing the replica medieval horn pipes

With Simpson in his own special place in the garden we have concentrated on our MuBu project, which has been fun.

A number of young people visited and made a video of me showing them around the manor and museum.  I would be surprised if the video was very clear, as the young person in charge had a habit of holding it upside down!  Time will tell.

The young people were particularly interested in our collection of prehistoric flints, and wondered how on earth prehistoric people ever managed to use them. They also liked the replica musical instruments that are in the museum. Mike, one of the volunteers, got the bagpipes out which one of the young lads tried to play, causing  peals of laughter amongst the others. Here a young person  is having a go at playing the horn pipe, which is made from a cow’s horn and is very difficult to play.
