Experience the Iron Age
Experience the Iron Age, with Matt Russell, has been designed to give children and adults a varied, active and educational insight into life as it may have been in the Mid to Late Iron Age 400BC to 50 AD.
This includes examples of metal, wood and leatherwork, as well as the use of various organic materials such as antler, wool and bone, with display and interactive examples of many replica items.
Children are invited to join in with the Iron Age Warrior Training, giving them a “hands on” experience, using wooden swords, spears and javelins. All the activities are designed so the children can use the wooden weapons in a structured and safe environment, with multiple sets of apparatus holding various “targets”. At no point do the children handle the weapons unsupervised or use them in any other way but to enjoy the activities provided.
