School visits to Museum of the Iron Age

We are currently developing an exciting new range of sessions for schools at the Museum of the Iron Age to support the changes to the National Curriculum.

All sessions last 2 hours, are facilitated by a specially trained member of our team and are for one class.
For individual session prices, please contact the Museum.

These sessions will be launching soon.

Join Our Tribe – Key Stage 2

Join Our Tribe gives children a great opportunity to focus on Iron Age life and culture at the museum which tells the story of nearby Danebury Hill Fort. Using the displays, plus replica artefacts and a life-size roundhouse, children prepare for an Iron Age festival! Schools can extend their visit to a whole day with a self-led or countryside ranger-led session at Danebury – details at http://www3.hants.gov.uk/countryside/danebury.htm

Dead Man’s Tales - The Mystery of The Danebury Body – Key Stage 2

The session looks at one particular human burial from the Iron Age. Who was this person? Why were they buried at a Hill Fort? What does the evidence tell us about life and death in the Iron Age?

The class work in groups to examine the evidence, using the museum displays and handling collections to provide a structured story about the last days of the Danebury body.

Caution: Archaeologists at Work – Key Stage 2

Caution: Archaeologists at Work links to the stunning Fullerton Mosaic and gets children working as archaeologists, examining real and replica Roman artefacts to build a hypothesis based on the evidence they examine.
