Facts about the Iron Age

1. The Iron Age was between 500 BC to 43 AD in Britain.

The date range of the Iron Age varied across the world.

This is because different parts of the world started to use iron at different times.

However, Britain was in the Iron Age between 500 BC to 43 AD.

2. Iron became popular and was what was mainly used during this time.

During the Iron Age, iron became the most popular material to use when making tools and weapons.

They decided to use iron because it is much stronger than anything used previously (such as stone and bronze).

3. People were ruled by warrior Kings!

Back in the Iron Age, people used to live in clans.

These clans belonged to tribes and were lead by warrior Kings.

Life was dangerous back then as rival tribes would battle against each other using the dangerous weapons they had made.

4. Iron was used to make sharp objects!

Iron was much stronger than bronze and was able to make sharp objects.

To shape these objects they would have to heat the iron and hit it with a hammer to shape it.

5. The most popular job was farming.

The main form of income in the Iron Age was farming.

This is what most people did as a job.

The other main jobs in these times were potters, carpenters and metalworkers.

6. Grain was stored in granaries and storage pits.

Once the grain had been harvested by farmers, it had to be stored.

There were many granaries which were built above the ground on posts.

They were also stored underground in storage pits.

The pits were often around 2 – 3 metres deep!

Thousands of these pits have been found.

7. People lived in hill forts.

Hill forts were where people lived.

They were on top of a hill so that they could see when enemies were approaching.

There were lots of houses and the forts were almost like little towns.

They were surrounded by ditches and wooden walls to make it harder for their enemies to attack.

8. The average life expectancy was 25 years.
