Today we started learning about life in the Iron Age! We learned that people started living in hillforts, which were like small towns, to protect themselves from being attacked by enemy tribes! We knew that hillforts had to be well designed to help prevent an attack and also sustain the people who lived there. Everything they needed to survive had to be available in the hillforts. We then designed and made our own mini hillforts thinking about the things they needed to include, such as roundhouses, weapons, crops, animals, and fire. We had a range of materials and got to choose what we thought would be best to make each part, they were tricky, but fun to build!
