Iron Age Experience

To set the scene, children will have the Stone Age to Iron Age timeline illustrated and explained. After this, your class will become new members of the Dobunni tribe where they will discover more about daily life in the Iron Age.

Find out what Iron Age people ate, where they lived and what they wore. In addition, traditional craft activities provide the chance to learn hands-on. For instance spinning wool into thread, weaving a woolen panel and making a clay pot.
