Tales and Treasures


Join us as we travel back in time to discover the amazing arts and culture of the Anglo-Saxons.

“Tales and Treasures” is a full day living history workshop aimed at primary schools which delves into Anglo-Saxon crafts, music and storytelling. From the messages in their metalwork to their carefully woven tales, our workshop enables children to explore the skilled craftsmanship of the Anglo-Saxons and the important role it played in their culture.

During the day, children will develop their historical enquiry skills through archaeological investigation and artefact handling. They will have the opportunity to explore how Anglo-Saxons used story-telling through drama; play with toys and games, decipher riddles and create their own crafts. 

Planned and delivered by an experienced teacher and packed full of exciting artefacts and resources, our workshop provides an immersive learning experience, guaranteed to get your class excited about the Anglo-Saxons!
