Our Iron Age Life workshop
This workshop takes place in our Iron Age roundhouse and lasts for 60 – 90 minutes depending upon whether it is your main focus or a contrast session for the Stone Age workshop. The objective of this workshop is for children to identify and experience Iron Age lifestyle.
During this workshop children will learn about Iron Age settlements and the growth of animal husbandry and farming. In reference to this, they grind grain and create flatbreads which are cooked over the open fire in our replica roundhouse; they create butter from cream and fashion clay pottery. There are additional activities relating to the growing of crops and the evidence of Iron Age jewellery.
Children will leave this workshop having made a small clay pot to take home. Please bring a cardboard box to transport these safely back to school.
