Delve into the wold of the Celts and discover the Iron Age

The lives of the ancient Britons were dramatically different from the lives we lead today. There were no large cities, no written languages and for much of the Iron Age there wasn't even any money. Yet the Iron Age Celts were nothing if not creative and skilled artists, farmers, warriors, traders and craftsmen. Incredible artefacts dug from fields, rivers and graves each tell us something about how they lived their lives, their beliefs and gods they worshipped, and how they fought and died.

Discover the Celts and the Iron Age is a classic history topic book that takes a look at aspects of life in Iron Age Britain through the objects they left behind. In Warriors and Weapons, discover why tribes had to fight against each other and the invading Roman Army. Find out what Celtic warriors wore into battle; the weapons they made from bronze and iron; and why they had such a reputation as fearsome fighters.

Aimed at readers aged 7+ studying KS2 history.

Biographical Notes

Moira Butterfield (Author)
I have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.
