As part of their topic covering The Romans, Year four visited Butser Farm in Portsmouth. Butser Ancient Farm is a unique experimental archaeology site nestled into the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park.
The farm features archaeological reconstructions of ancient buildings from the Stone Age, Iron Age, Roman Britain and the Anglo-Saxon period.
The buildings are internationally famous and appear frequently in documentaries and feature films. They also grow crops from prehistory and keep rare breeds of animals, such as goats and sheep.
The children really enjoyed the day as they got a real time feel on how people lived and worked during this historic period.
