What was it like to sleep in an Anglo-Saxon hut 1,000 years ago? And what would you have worn, or had to eat? Years 3 and 4 pupils have been learning all about these and other aspects of life for our distant ancestors, and went to find out more and try things out at West Stow Anglo-Saxon village in Suffolk last week. First they took a close look at the huge collection of Anglo-Saxon artefacts in the museum, solving some interesting riddles as they explored. Then, after some modern-day play at lunchtime in the adventure playground, they dressed up to explore the many recreated Anglo-Saxon huts at West Stow and gained a real insight into how different life was for our ancestors. The day ended with everyone gathering in the Great Hall for an enchanting Anglo-Saxon story-telling session.
