Building Butser with the U4s

The U4 Classicists spent a hands-on day finding out about Iron Age Britain when they visited Butser Ancient Farm near Petersfield last week. The farm consists of traditionally built houses and a communal roundhouse which are all part of a working farm researching agricultural and domestic  life of Celtic Iron Age and Roman Britain. There is even a newly reconstructed Roman villa based on a Hampshire excavation.

Girls visited all areas of the farm, tried their hand at spinning and jewellery making and even helped construct a wattle and daub wall (with real poo!).
