We base our learning sessions in the time of King Alfred the Great – the only monarch ever to have been awarded the title ‘The Great’ in the latter days of the 9th century.
A typical day would include a visit from Bryctwulf the Thegn. [seen right]
Sessions may involve more than one educator as per your requirements- so students benefit from a carousel of activities on a variety of topics- such as understanding The Migration Period of our history after the decline of the Roman empire, poetry & sagas, life in the burgh, medicine & surgery, differences between rich and poor, food, trade and warfare. We can also bring in a Viking for understanding the differences between the cultures at this time.
Our Anglo-Saxon day includes a great selection of objects for study and handling, with Anglo Saxon names for all students, role-play & dressing up activities, military weapons, tactics and battles, have-a-go activities such as: making butter, striking a coin, grinding corn, fire-lighting with flint & steel, understanding food & diet, plus comparisons with our lifestyle today.
We have NATIONWIDE COVERAGE to enable us to deliver our school workshops across the country, where-ever your school is located. From Suffolk to Anglesey, Isle of Wight to Scotland, we make history happen!
