Impressive Iron Age

Human History learning experiences

Escape the classroom and travel back in time.

Immerse your pupils in the history of their local area and bring to life the Iron Age period.

They won’t have to imagine what life was like as they will be standing on a Scheduled Ancient Monument that is steeped in history.

We aim to spark curiosity by providing an opportunity to connect with history in a tangible way; your pupils will learn how to defend the hill fort, handle iron age artefacts found on our site and finish the day by learning to light a fire and build their own roundhouse.

Your class will come away excited about the Iron Age, truly understanding what an impressive era it was, and eager to return to the classroom to learn more.
