What is it like to live in the city with a Stone Age mindset? What kind of “nature” is it if you look at it like a forest or a mammoth steppe? What kind of spirits and creatures move there?

Hunter-gatherers was a social experiment where a band of urban hunter-gatherers lived in their camp in Kalasatama, Helsinki in August 2021.
