Historic Life Weekend: Saxon Archaeology

Saturday 20 July to Sunday 21 July 2019
10.30am - 5.30pm

To coincide with the nation-wide Festival of Archaeology, we will have a weekend of demonstrations and displays relating to the finds that have been left from the fascinating Saxon era. Alongside displays of pottery, textiles and other elements of everyday life, listen to readings in Old English and take the chance to discuss with a range of experts on Saxon life.

Programme for Saturday 20 July

Programme for Sunday 21 July


For 2019 we have a new series of Historic Life weekends focusing on different historical angles of the Museum’s collection. There will be a chance to chat to experts, see demonstrations and displays as well as explore the Museum. These are ideal for people specifically interested in the subject areas, as well as those generally interested and looking for an enjoyable, relaxing day out with a difference.

The programme is subject to change.
