Our popular, fun filled family history and archaeology day. Iron Age activities for children – including making rope and using natural stains with the Cambridge Young Archaeologists, simple weaving or basic basket making techniques, cooking over an open fire or making chainmail. There will also be chances to try your hand at archery, use a slingshot and make your own stick bow and arrow to take home.
Perhaps you’ll prefer to meet some of our local archaeologists and find out about their areas of expertise, go on a guided tour of our Iron Age hillfort, follow self-guided historic trails, listen to stories told by the Cambridge Storytellers or even check out beekeeping with the Cambridge Beekeepers.
Events and activities will be held across the Paddock, Ring, Orchard and Stable Rooms.
Entry is free to this popular event but there will be a small charge for selected activities. There will also be opportunities to buy some items.
How many times have you walked/cycled/driven past this beautiful old building and wondered what it is like inside?
Calling all budding adventurers - an opportunity for children to find their wild side!
Don't be shy! Come and try your hand at basket making at this relaxed, informative day.
