Iron Age

The Iron Age distinguishes the period between the Bronze Age and the arrival of the Romans, when the dominant tool making material was iron. ULAS have undertaken many Iron Age excavations. Notable projects include the excavation of the Hallaton treasure hoard, and the University's student training excavation at the Iron Age hill fort at Burrough Hill. Discover more below...
