Britain in the Iron Age

Britain in the Iron Age

LESSON OUTLINE• A map with the legend 'here be dragons' will be displayed on the IWB.• Students are to discuss their own ideas about what those words mean, and share with a partner, before it is ‘unpicked’ as a class. • Explain that, for the Romans, Britain was on the very edge of the world - because it seemed so far away, it was portrayed as savage and dangerous, similar to the 'here be dragons' legend used on later maps to signify the unknown.• Students are to read through three accounts of Iron Age Britain - Julius Caesar, Strabo and Herodian. They will then attempt brief drawings of the bizarre inhabitants described by the Roman authors.• With the Roman view established, students will now look at information around the room, displaying archeological evidence, in order to disprove the claims made by the Romans.• Students will stand along a continuum at the front of the classroom to answer a question posed by the teacher, thus demonstrating their newly acquired knowledge.DIFFERENTIATION• Three versions of the Roman writer sources - HA, MA and LA - depending on levels of literacy and reading.• Also, three versions of worksheet for activity using archeological evidence, again depending on ability.AFL• Questionning and sharing after students have read the Roman accounts and completed their drawings.• Teacher circulation and questionning as students complete task by going around the room.• Whole-class discussion as plenary.
