I’ve missed you, the weather sucks.
I want food but most of all I love you.
P.S. The Iron Age rocks, you have missed out on a lot!
I have just signed up for the army and I have killed my first roman.
Hope everything is alright.
All the best,
The Iron Age is horrible, the food portions are very small and it rains all the time.
I miss you
Dear Iron Age people,
I would like to tell you how 21st Century people live. Nowadays we have cars, big houses, lots of games like football, rugby and many more.
We only have one queen and we all work together.
Dear people of the Iron Age!
I like your swords, they must have been useful. Who invented the axe?
Hope the weather is nice.
Enjoy the past.

You’ve missed out.
Ipods are my life.
Apple is not only a fruit but a brand.
Iron is replaced by steel.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
Paul Evans and Becky Smith led this drop in activity during the CAER Heritage Project exhibition at St Fagans on Monday 18th June.
Visitors were asked to write a postcard from the Iron Age to the present day (or from the present day to the Iron Age).
We received some great postcards from our friends in the Iron Age :
I like the round houses.
They’re just like our houses but smaller and much colder!!
I can’t wait to come back home.
The food portions are the same that we give to our dogs.
I love you a lot!
Dear future archaeologists,
I have buried a rather nice drinking cup in my round house, maybe you will be able to find it!

And sent some great ones to the Iron Age from the present day:
Central heating is a fantastic invention, better than fires. Do you have wine yet? The weather does not improve. The current queen is pretty great, look forward to that. Have fun.
Wish you were here!
Dear Iron Age people,
I would like you to have seen our IT “Google” systems today!
I like your axes and swords!
More Postcards from the Iron Age to follow soon!
On 18 June 2012 we held an exhibition of work inspired by the Caer Heritage Project at Oakdale Hall, St Fagans: National History Museum. The exhibition was opened by Mark Drakeford, AM for Ely and Sian Price, series director of Time Team.
Here are a few photos of the amazing exhibits.
During April 2012 Caerau hillfort was visited by Time Team.
Here are some photos from the dig.
