A day at Herd Farm. We started by finding out about the early Stone Age. First, we made shelters and discussed how to survive.

To survive, we had to hunt for food. Stone Age people would have hunted alone. We had to work silently and sneak up on our prey.

Next was to look at life in the Bronze age and Iron Age. We explored roundhouses and found out how people lived in communities.

To make roundhouses, people would have to make a wattle wall. We hammered in the stakes and weaved using willow.

To be an Iron Age warrior, we had to work in groups. We also needed a loud war cry to scare our enemies.

We ended a cold day with a fire, having lit it with iron and flint.
