Iron Age adventures in England
Youngsters are preparing to be taken back to the Iron Age at an archaeology fun day this February half-term at the Ham Hill Country Park at Stoke-sub-Hamdon (South Somerset, England). The event, organised and run by South Somerset District Council's countryside rangers, will give children the opportunity to dig for artefacts, make their own coins, have their face painted as an Iron Age warrior and piece together Roman mosaics.
Bookings are now being taken ahead of the event. A session for under-eights will take place between 10am and 12noon and an over-eight's session between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, both on Thursday, February 18. It is part of a series of events being held by the district council over the school holidays to provide educational, outdoor activities at the Green Flag country park with Heritage Lottery funding support. Sessions cost £4 per child and free for accompanying adults. Book now on 01935-845946.
