Survival School was established in 1997 by Jonny Crockett, a Level 5 Instructor, to provide a place of learning for those who wanted to know more about bushcraft and the wilderness. Jonny Crockett still runs most of the courses himself. It is his personal attention to detail and his enthusiasm for the subject that has helped to make Survival School what it is – A place of good fun and good learning.
Jonny graduated from the University of Exeter with a Masters Degree in Experimental Archaeology. His dissertation was on Ötzi the Iceman’s curation and transportation of fire, in which he scientifically disproved a key theory. He is now studying for a PhD at the University of Exeter, specialising in Fire Lighting, Curation and Maintenance.
