TIME TRAVELLING: HISTORICAL DAYS OUT IN SUFFOLK
Calling all time travellers (and parents of time travellers)! This year why not enjoy some historical days out and transport yourself back over a thousand years to Anglo Saxon Suffolk, a time when families lived together in roundhouses and kings were buried in treasure-filled ships?
In the 1960s and 70s, a group of architects spent several years uncovering an astonishing discovery in the Suffolk village of West Stow. What they had found was an ancient village, complete with 69 houses and 7 halls, once home to about 700 Anglo-Saxon people.
Part of the settlement has since been recreated, making West Stow a brilliant place for historical days out. It’s now a functioning village where time travellers can learn about ancient ways of life, watch re-enactments and even dress up as Anglo-Saxons themselves!
