If you're a teacher then you'll definitely want Imagining History to bring their 'How to Survive in Anglo-Saxon England' Interactive workshop to your school.

Our Award-Winning sessions combine role-play, storytelling, demonstrations and drama and performance to bring history to life for your students.

In our 'How to Survive in Anglo-Saxon England' workshop, Imagining History will teach your students everything they need to know to make it out of the Dark Ages in one piece. Your students will:

  • Learn how to survive and thrive as an Anglo-Saxon peasant, noble and monk.

  • Discover what life as a Monk was like in a Christian Monastery and try to live through a Viking raid.

  • Learn how to farm and grow crops the Anglo-Saxon way.

  • Uncover the secrets behind the Anglo-Saxon conversion from Paganism to Christianity.

  • Join a Fyrd and transform the school hall into a battlefield to learn how to fight in an Anglo-Saxon shield wall.
