Farm Life

Audio version

From here you can see that the land surrounding the camp is predominantly farmland which hasn't changed since the time of the camp's occupation. Grain was sown in the fields outside the hillfort then harvested and brought inside the camp using sickles like the one shown below, found at Sutton Walls. Excavations have also shown that the community was rich in livestock as enormous quantities of sheep, cattle and pig bones were found.

Romono-Bntish, iron sickle with socket for a wooden handle used for harvesting grain crops or cutting vegetation.
