IIIrd and IVth Form Trip to the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranborne, Dorset.

On Friday 5th May, the Juniors spent the day broadening their knowledge of how people lived in early Britain. The girls were based in an Iron Age earthouse, and visited a Viking Longhouse and Roman forge. They collected and made natural dyes out of wode, nettles and comfrey as well as weaving willow fences to keep the rabbits out of the Roman herb garden. The highlight for many, but not all (!), was learning to scour the fat off 3 deer skins as part of the leather-making process.
