The Iron Age Museum tells the story of Danebury Ring, an Iron Age hillfort

It was excavated by Prof Barry Cunliffe between 1969 and 1988 becoming one of the most intensively studied sites of the British Iron Age (750 BC to the Roman invasion 43AD).

The museum has life-sized models and reconstructions, as well as finds from the excavations, creating a picture of how people farmed, fought, worshipped and died, more than 2000 years ago.

After completing work at the hillfort, Barry Cunliffe set about investigating Iron Age and Roman sites in the vicinity. Finds from some of these, together with the first La Tene mirror from Hampshire, are also displayed in the museum.
