FII learn how Iron Age people lived

FII online history lesson: The Celts

In this week’s online history lesson, FII pupils learnt about how Iron Age people lived in Britain, and how this differed from previous time periods.

By the end of the Iron Age many families lived in round houses. These were simple one-roomed homes with a pointed thatched roof and walls made from wattle and daub (a mixture of mud and twigs).

In the centre of a round house was a fire where meals were cooked in a cauldron. Around the walls were jars for storing food and beds made from straw covered with animal skins.

FII pupils made their own round house constructions as part of this week’s history lesson.
