‘Guiding explorers of the future’


Zoom Meeting Challenge #5

After the collapse of the Roman Empire in the 5th century the peoples of northern Europe - Angles, Saxons and Jutes - quickly moved to fill the power void left in Britain, settling, taking control, and introducing their culture to the Britons.

1500 years later we still owe a great deal to these peoples, in our language, culture, and genetic inheritance. This workshop takes a look at two essential aspects of Anglo-Saxon life - weapons and warfare, and jewellery. The many stunning works in gold and silver left by the craftsmiths reveal that this period is unfairly known as a Dark Age.
