Celtic Living History at Land’s End for Easter Weekend
Posted on Apr 08, 2014

In the light of recent discoveries made at the westernmost point of Cornwall, an ‘Iron Age Tribe’ will be invading Land’s End for Easter Weekend.

What lies beneath the soil of Land’s End has been getting archaeologists excited since last year, when a family of burrowing rabbits unearthed stunning evidence of over 5000 years of human activity.

Since then, Land’s End has been working in partnership with Big Heritage; an award-winning heritage consultancy, to recognise, share and preserve the many heritage assets now identified at this world famous landmark and tourist destination.

Indeed, with an Iron Age hillfort and many Iron Age field systems in the immediate vicinity of the main complex, it seemed only right to invite the ‘Dumnonika Tribe’ to Land’s End for Easter Weekend.

The Dumnonika are one of the UK’s leading Iron Age Living History teams, and will be bringing Iron Age Cornwall to life at Land’s End with combat displays, cooking demonstrations and craft activities.

There will also be the chance for children to join the Celtic band of warriors and take part in some weapons training.

Alice Reynolds, Marketing Manager said

‘Easter at Land’s End this year, promises to be an educational, but very exciting weekend of heritage and it will be an absolute pleasure to see Iron Age Cornwall brought to life for our visitors.’

The Dumnonika will be at Land’s End from Good Friday until Easter Sunday from 10.00 – 16.00.
