    Moira Butterfield
    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.

But how does it get to our homes?Water is one of the most amazing resources that we use in abundance and have come to rely on heavily. It is used in all sorts of household chores, leisure activities and in work and industry. From the pitter-patter of raindrops to the whoosh of water from the shower, we follow the journey from the source to the resource. We begin by looking at what water is and where it comes from, and the all-important water cycle. We then look at how water is stored and treated ready to be pumped around the country and into our homes. Finally we consider the environmental impact of our water use and what we can do to use less water in our daily lives. We also look at how people live in places that do not have a reliable water supply and methods that can be used to clean water that is in short supply.
