The Celts were farmers and would spend a lot of their day looking after crops and livestock:
  • They grew: wheat (to make bread), barley, rye and oats in small fields.
  • They kept cattle and sheep to provide: manure, wool or hide (leather) and food.
Dogs were probably used to help hunt animals such as wild boar. We can also assume that they ate: berries, nuts and fish too.

By the end of the Iron age, wine and oil would have been imported from the Roman Empire in Europe.
