When the village ox escapes, you are blamed and sent into exile. In a nearby forest, you come across a camp of Vikings who are planning to burn down your village. How will you warn your neighbours, and will you ever see your grandma again?


In this Experience, your class will learn about:

  • Rural Anglo-Saxon life, reliant on agriculture and animals such as oxen and chickens
  • Village life in wooden huts, and the structure of society (e.g. the village chief)
