Anglo-Saxon Training Camp

(or How to Defeat a Viking Horde)

Welcome to the Imagining History Anglo-Saxon Training Camp.

Your students are about to go shoulder to shoulder with King Alfred the Great in battle. So it's time they learnt how to defeat a Viking Horde. They will:

  • Travel through the timeline of events running up to Alfred the Great's battle with the Great Heathen Army.

  • Take on the role of an Anglo-Saxon and Viking, to learn the differences between them, both on the battle field and off.

  • Endure the very first Viking Raid as a Monk at Lindisfarne.

  • Come face to face with Hurscarl Warriors on the battle field and discover how to defeat them.

  • Transform your school hall into a battlefield to learn how to fight in an Anglo-Saxon shield wall.
