Iron Age (Celts)
Follow the Atrebates tribe as they navigate the perilous world of Roman Britain. Learn about Celtic customs, beliefs and how different tribes adjusted to Roman rule.
On arrival, your group become members of the Atrebates tribe, and settlers in these lands. We are nearby the town of Calleva Atrebatum, where manufactured goods, such as horse and chariot gear, were exchanged for metals, grain, slaves and other commodities from across southern Britain. In turn these were passed to the Roman world in exchange for luxury foodstuffs and manufactured goods.
Our historical narrative will allow your children to experience Celtic life, with visits to us having the opportunity to use our onsite celtic settlement. Through a range of activities, they experience elements of culture and life in Iron Age Britain, the impact of the Romans and can re-enact one of the most famous Celtic stories, Boudicca. Whether it be for three days or one, your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.
“The teaching staff bought the Celts to life. We loved the activities – they were short enough to keep them engaged, but long enough for lots of learning. Thank you for a fantastic day – year 3 teacher at Binfield, June 2018
