Crafty Celts

Bring your class for a 'hands on history' day at Carymoor, enabling them to experience for themselves the techniques and materials used by Celtic craftspeople during the Iron Age. A Crafty Celts day includes a choice of exciting activity options such as:


  • Investigate our replica roundhouse: What is it made of? How was it built and what would it be like to live in?
  • Build your own mini-roundhouses using natural materials, to make a Celtic 'village' back at school.
  • Try some ancient building techniques: Use Carymoor willow to weave some wattle panels to take back to school.
  • Use our replica saddle and rotary quern stones to grind grain into flour and cook some simple bread on a open fire.
  • Learn how to light a fire safely using a fire steel.
  • Follow our 'Footprints from the Past' trail to discover more about the wild creatures that lived in Britain at the time of the Celts.
  • Play some Celt-inspired games.
