September - April only.

Key Stages 2+

Study changes from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

Tour our Iron Age hillfort with complete circular ditch, learn about the archaeological evidence which has been found here and collect stickers to remind you.

Thresh and winnow ears of grain, grind it in our quern stones, then cook bread over an open fire.

Learn about roundhouses and weave a mini wattle wall to take home. If time allows, use slingshots and stick bows and arrows or paint your face with ‘woad’.

Wandlebury’s Iron Age programme proved an insightful introduction to our topic on Prehistoric Britain. The day was full of a great selection of hands-on learning activities as well as providing the children with opportunities to discuss and reflect on Celtic life.
