Medieval history workshops for primary schools

This entertaining one-day workshop provides insight into medieval life from 1066 to 1483.

Baron Hugh de Guerre will lead pupils through a range of themed activities, which include medieval dancing, jousting, learning about the early medieval “arms race” and how weapons were developed.

The children will also get to see and handle a range of real archaeological finds and high quality reproduction artefacts from the period.
