Week commencing 9th Dec 2019
We have finally managed to complete the construction of our Replica Iron Age Shields. The children had to evaluate how strong they were and realise now that Papier-Mache can be very rigid and is an excellent way in which to make strong joins between materials. Once the Ancient Britons had learned to make Bronze and then Iron, life changed a lot. Farming began and villages with protective ditches and wooden fences became safe places to live.
