Anglo Saxons

Join us for a 'hands on history' Anglo Saxon day at Carymoor, where you class will experience for themselves what it would be like to be living 1600 years ago. An Anglo Saxon day includes a choice of exciting activity options such as:

  • Make your own mini Anglo Saxon house using natural materials.
  • Try some ancient building techniques.
  • Learn how to light a fire safely using a fire steel.
  • Grind grain using a Quern Stone and cook some simple bread over an open fire
  • Solve our Rune challenge.
  • Make your own Anglo Saxon rune name 'medallion'.
  • Play some Anglo-saxon inspired games.
  • Follow our 'Footprints from the Past' trail to discover more about the wild creature that lived in Britain.
