Anglo-Saxon Settlers

1 July 2015 - 31 December 2020

Meet Ceolwulf, our resident Saxon, find out how his ancestors invaded and about his life in the settlement of Nort Wic in 975. Try on armour and recreate a shield wall. Learn about village life including farming, hunting, and crafts, and hear Saxon stories and riddles.

Work as an archaeologist to discover what a burial can tell us about Anglo-Saxon art and culture and the conversion to Christianity. Pupils will also make an Anglo-Saxon style pot to take away.
