Anglo-Saxons

A nation split into 7 kingdoms. Invaders from overseas murder and plunder. A fight for power like no other in British history.  Who will save them?

 

Learn about Anglo-Saxon life using a wide range of resources. You decide if the pen really is mightier than the sword.

The following is an example of a whole day session that can be delivered to 1, 2 or 3 classes of approximately 30 children.
