Making a living in Iron Age Britain

12:00 am - 12:00 am

What was it like to live in Britain before the arrival of the Romans? Curator Julia Farley explores what life was like for the farmers and warriors who lived in these islands over 2,000 years ago.

Using archaeological evidence from recent finds, as well as treasures from the British Museum’s collection, this talk will follow the daily, seasonal and generational cycles of prehistoric communities. Although organic materials such as wood and textiles are rarely preserved, the remains from settlements can help to reveal the worlds these people created, and their relationships with plants, animals and the landscape. Julia will also explore the playful way that creatures and textile patterns were incorporated into some of the most famous Celtic art objects from this period.

Includes a complimentary drink.

Cost: £15
