The ideal way to find out about what it was like to live in prehistoric times would be to talk to someone who had actually experienced it. So I did.
In this part, we talk about the time the farmstead was snowed in, and the intrusions of the press, the smell of iron age folk, keeping a fire going, and an appearance in The Beano!
John Rossetti was one of fifteen people who took part in the BBC's 'Living in the Past' experiment in 1977/8. They lived in iron age conditions for thirteen months, and showed remarkable dedication to the project. They even, without being required to, ploughed the fields again at the end of the project, just to show that they were able to keep the pattern of agricultural life going. They grew their own food, made their own clothes, kept about 100 mammals and a bee hive, and did without modern soaps, entertainments, and safety equipment.
