West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village
Kids Anglo-Saxon Workshops

5th to 8th April 2005

We were hired by West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village (run by St. Edmundsbury Council) to put on some workshops in which kids could get involved. The idea was that they would learn something about the Anglo-Saxons while having fun making things. They also got to take home what they made as well as a hand-out pack including all the information given in the workshop, plus how to make things at home. The workshops took place in one of the reconstructed buildings called the Workshop.
