Iron Age honey bee

The Celts and Romans Teacher’s pack offers a selection of possible foods that Iron Age peoples could have eaten. Perhaps, they used honey to sweeten their oat porridge or even fermented it to make mead?  I decided to present the concept of honey by depicting a bee on a honeycomb.

Chiseldon Cauldron

This is my reconstruction of one of the Chiseldon Cauldrons. My drawing is based on a reconstruction made by the British Museum. The Chiseldon Cauldrons were found in quite a poor condition and conservationists at the British Museum tried to carefully restore them as best as they could. I take creative liberty with the stand for dramatic effect in presenting how the object was used in real life during Iron Age times.
