Meet the River Tyne’s Anglo-Saxon ancestors

lanceHave you ever wanted to know what life was like for the people who lived by the River Tyne over 1300 years ago.  Come along and meet our Living History Anglo-Saxons.  Listen to their stories, try on their armour, and see what they used to eat.  Have a go at spinning some wool to make a garment; come early as you will need 12 miles of it to make a tunic!

valDiscover the connection between one of the Tyne’s most famous Anglo-Saxons and Easter. Explore Anglo-Saxon Easter superstitions and the tradition of why we colour and paint eggs.

Normal admission charges apply. £2 adults under 16’s and Network members free.
