Anglo-Saxons and Vikings


In history we looked back at the lives of early Britons starting with the Anglo-Saxons, how they lived, what impact they had on the landscape, and how they compared to the Vikings who came after them. We visited Jarrow Hall Farm, which is a reconstruction of an Anglo-Saxon village. It contained replica wattle-and-daub and timber-framed buildings based on structures excavated within Anglo-Saxon Northumbria.

We were able to sit around a roaring fire inside the Thirlings Hall with an informative guide, who allowed Levi and Laila-mai to explore the various artifacts on display.
