We don't know much about the Iron Age because at this time people didn't read or write, so we have no accounts of what life was like. Much of what we have found out about life during this time comes from looking at objects found buried in the ground, such as the Hallaton Treasure.
- Why might the Iron Age people have buried this treasure at the time of the invasion?
- What do you think might have worried them about the arrival of Romans in Britain?
- How would you feel about Britain being invaded by an army from another country today?
- What sort of valuable or sentimental objects would you bury, in this situation?
