The sky daubed with woad

The lively Home Education group returned for a second workshop, indoors this time, to follow up our explorations on the hillfort.

Archaeologists Mike and Teri returned in full handwoven costume, and the children ground corn in the quern, handled Iron Age (replica) tools, bowls, even a beautiful bronze mirror.

Then we made use of our Poem Notes (written out in the wind and the mud) to write short poems for a Pegged-Up Poem display, and Ruth ran a clay workshop which resulted in marvellous new clay roundels for the project installation.
