We’ve been asked to help Ufton Court design a prehistoric village for their Education department, to help them deliver the new Primary History curriculum, which focuses significantly more on prehistory than previously.
On a gloriously sunny spring day, we planted a living willow Viking longship as part of their new archaeological village. Soon there will be also an Iron Age roundhouse and a Saxon house for school groups to use too. Look out Saxons, there may be some Viking invasions!
A gloriously sunny day which brought in over 2500 visitors on a single day! Everyone was fascinated by the dyeing and the Iron Age loom, we were most impressed when people weren’t misled by us being dressed in Tudor costume and the loom being Iron Age. It was very interesting to see the house, especially the priest holes.
