Butser Ancient Farm

Fantastic Half-Term trip to Butser Ancient Farm with friends.

Iron Age village with Round houses, neolithic buildings, roman villa and lots of hands on things for the kids to try. We had 7-12 yr olds and they all loved it. It had a fantastic quiz to do which the kids and adults enjoyed. Very reasonably priced, a lovely place to visit. Great staff/volunteers who are obviously passionate about history, but not imposing, if you show an interest then they are keen to share knowledge which was brilliant, we learnt an amazing amount about Roman soldiers. We also learnt that there were female gladiators called gladiatrix!! R was impressed with that.
