Iron Age
Iron Age

800 - 12 BC
Iron is very suitable for strong tools. More than three thousand years ago, scientists succeded in winning iron from ore and editing the iron. Some centuries later also in our country forgings is made, the beginning of a new era. The Iron Age has been intensified, by using the iron plowshare, the crops and livestock, so that the population grows. Farmers keep cattle for meat and milk, but also derive status from their animals. They represent capital. People go in search of new farmland and create marshy areas serviced by the construction of the first waterworks such as dams, culverts and mounds. Families and relatives are forming groups and challenge each other's soil. We talk about nations and tribes, Gauls, Celts and Germans. From burial gifts out of the graves we can see a large differences in social status. Very rich people wear gold jewelry or special beads and they use bronze ware. The horse is introduced, a powerful workanimal which can also be used for transportation. Archaeological excavations have found horse bits. There are hardly any specialised craftsmen left. All the work is mainly carried out as part of farmers life: from forgings to pottery, from cheese to making linen and weaving wool.
