On the south lawn the East Sussex Archaeology and Museums Partnership gave demonstations of Iron Age pot making, grinding with a stone, wood working with a lathe, thatching, dying, cooking and weaving and there was a chance to join in.

In the barn visitors came face to face with Celtic warriors and were able to look at their clothing and weaponry.

Brighton and Hove Archaeological Society was on hand with some finds, including bones.

There were also craft activities for the children like colouring and they were able to have their faces painted to look like warriors.

Marketing officer Jo Grocott said numbers were down on last year but the feedback had been good and visitors enjoyed themselves.
