Join us as we discuss what has been discovered at local archaeological dig sites and how the treasures that are on display tell us about what life was like for the Anglo-Saxons. Students are encouraged to investigate and handle replicas of objects found within Anglo-Saxon graves, take part in fun board games and create their own clay pot to take back to school.


Our popular hands on workshops are led by a member of the Museum Learning Team and have a mixture of replica and original objects for your class to explore and enjoy. Plus, children get to make something to take home on the day.

Lasting approximately 1 hour (start times: 10am, 11.15am and 1pm)

Suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2.

£35 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child (please note, this will increase to £2 from April 2018).
