We made an exciting discovery at the weekend of an Iron Age hill fort near where we live. It was really exciting to show the children where the mud embankments still stood firm even to this day, bearing record of defences in times past. It’s almost unimaginable all of the many things that have happened in times past, in the places we stand today. Places so peaceful and serene, that were once vicious and merciless battlefields.
In survival mode, campfires were erected with the delicacy of ‘warmed’ jaffa cakes served to keep morale up for the soldiers defending their fort!
It always amazes me how many hours of fun can be had with a few sticks and a huge imagination.
