The "Iron Age"
( 700BC - 43AD )
By the end of the Iron Age most of the original natural forest has been cleared and animals like wolves, bears and aurochs (wild cattle) are either extinct or have become rare.

Large numbers of farmsteads of this period have been recorded from the chalklands of Hampshire, but none are known in the immediate vicinity of Bordon and Whitehill. They must have existed however, as Walldown is probably an Iron Age hillfort established to control and to provide protection for the local population.
People lived in roundhouses, some of which had the same floor area as a modern detached house.
Towards the end of the period coinage was introduced into Britain and trade with the Roman world increased.
