Vikings and Anglo Saxons at Tatton

Children in Prep 4 learned all about the Vikings and Anglo Saxons during a trip to Tatton Park at the end of February.

They visited the remotest part of the Tatton estate in the area near the Old Hall where there was once an Anglo Saxon farming community. Archaeologists have found evidence of several buildings including an Anglo Saxon Longhouse.

The children learned about Saxon armour, grinding wheat to flour, rowing in Viking longships and braiding wool. They were also fortunate to witness the estate’s deer being fed.
