The Epoch of Reionisation (EoR) is one of the most mysterious epochs in our universes history. It stands as one of the main hurdles in constraining the parameters of the Lambda-CDM model further. It is currently one of the biggest research frontiers in Astrophysics and Radio Astronomy. I will first explain the motivations for exploring the EoR, and an overview of using the 21-cm hydrogen spectral line. I will discuss current experimental efforts, and the enormous difficulties that face radio astronomers in trying to detect the highly redshifted 21-cm spectral line. Tentative results and current progress is discussed, as well as a look towards the future in this growing area of cosmology and astronomy.
