Must Farm

We have spent a couple of weeks focussing on the amazing Bronze Age site of Must Farm in the fens.  We started by looking at all the archaeological evidence that was found on site.  We worked in groups to try to decide what the place was, what life was like there and what happened to it. We created 'crime boards' to record our thoughts and ideas on.

We used the evidence that we had gathered to build models of the roundhouses as if the settlement had only just been built.  As much as possible, we tried to use authentic building materials and techniques.  We practiced strengthening structures, building wattle and daub walls and square lashing materials to join them before launching in to our models.
