5LP's Anglo Saxon Day at Michelham Priory

5LP went to Michelham Priory for an Anglo-Saxon themed day. First of all we looked at weapons, amour and shields that Anglo-Saxon warriors used. We also looked at some tools used for farming. Once we knew what the weapons and tools were, we learnt and practiced how to defend ourselves using shields and spears to make a shield wall. We role-played being farmers who had to suddenly become warriors when the Vikings attacked! After successfully defeating the Vikings we looked at lots of different Anglo-Saxon artefacts, found by archaeologists, made from many different materials. We then role-played the death of a king and buried him by performing the Anglo-Saxon death and burial ritual. Finally we made some Anglo-Saxon brooches and amulets. We had a wonderful day and learnt so many things about the Anglo-Saxons. 5LP
