Special day will give insight into life of Iron Age warrior

A chance to find out more about the Mystery Warrior at his North Bersted burial site is on offer tomorrow.


The Novium Museum is staging its first community day to enable people to learn the facts around the ground-breaking discovery.


The free event is taking place from 10am-4pm at Bersted Park Community Centre in Lakeland Avenue.


The warrior occupied what was arguably the most important warrior grave uncovered in England. He is believed to have lived around 50BC.


Tomorrow will provide a treasure trove of information about life in the Iron Age. Visitors will have the chance to handle and hold replica weaponry and objects from the Novium’s collection.


A statement said: “Hear about the work that takes place at Butser Ancient Farm, a leading site for experimental archaeology, as well as from archaeologists from Thames Valley Archaeological Services who excavated the site.


“Learn more about what people wore and how they made their clothes, and have a go at weaving on our loom.”


Also taking place will be mini-digs and crafts. A permanent information panel about the warrior will be unveiled.
