Ireland was covered in trees and these first people lived by hunting, fishing and gathering, moving from place to place and building campsites like the one you see here.
They had learnt to make pottery, which was useful for cooking and storing food and drink.

These were ritual deposits, deliberately cast into pools and bogs.
One of the reasons people may have done this was the changing climate.
