Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort, which is owned and managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, will be showcasing weaponry and warfare in the Iron Age at two upcoming Prehistoric Fayres during the summer holidays on August 2nd and 16th.
The words weaponry and warfare might colour your impression of the Iron Age in Britain as a particularly violent and warlike period, but in fact, it was not much different to other periods in the past in this respect. Find out more by popping along on a UK day out.
Castell Henllys Manager Rhonwen Owen enthused: “It’s a time travelling experience sitting among our reconstructed Iron Age round houses and really being involved in how life really was in prehistoric Britain, which was as much about farming as fighting!
“The Fayres are a celebration of ancient crafts and traditions, with demonstrations, stalls and activities for all the family, storytelling, guided tours, bush-craft skills and refreshments.
“You can try your hand at basket making and metal working, watch a costumed worker using a pole lathe or browse stalls selling local crafts – there’s something for everyone.
Other events during the summer at Castell Henllys include Fighting and Farming, Crafty Little Celts and Myths and Mysteries. For a full list of events and activities log onto www.castellhenllys.com or pick up a copy of Coast to Coast.
