Welcome to the new Roots of Iron Website

What is Roots of Iron?

Have you ever wanted to have a go at working metal on a forge? Or wondered how they first extracted iron from the rocks of Sheffield? Or how the people that lived here 2500 years ago actually lived?

Roots of Iron is a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund for young people aged  11 – 25. Based round yearly events that happen on Wincobank Hill and Woolley Woods, we will have a go at some of those ancient crafts, and find creative ways to share the ancient history with the rest of our community.
