I'm not volunteering, but it would be interesting to see people trying to do Bronze age and iron age re-enacting. They did actually have textiles, nice big houses etc in the iron age anyhow. And horses, chariots, lots of fun stuff.
And Brochs. Brochs rock, literally and metaphorically.

I agree! Properly done Bronze/early Iron age re-enacment would be quite a challange but quite good fun! In a Scottish setting it would be good to start myth busting from as far back as possible. I've always found it amusing that we know more about some forms of wepaonary from the late bronze age than we do about the early historic.

I think its because Bronze survives quite well, and also they were burying people in large mounds with said weaponry. Whereas iron has just rusted away. THen theres the whole thing about rapiers or cutting bronze swords, that seems to have kept some people busy for years.
