Session 1: 10.15-11am

Session 2: 11.30am-12,15pm

Session 3: 12.45-1.30pm

An exciting, hands on learning session where families can learn about the Anglo- Saxon way of life in Leicestershire.

Come and find out how the Anglo Saxons lived through artefacts and burial sites that have been found locally. Study our Anglo- Saxon autopsy and see if you can use your detective skills to work out who the skeleton could be, how they lived and what they believed in.

Delve into burial pots to discover grave goods belonging to our ancestors. Who do you think they belonged to?

Session length 45 minutes.

Suitable for age 7+ years. Children should be accompanied. One ticket per participant both children and adults.
