Countryside Heritage

Saxon Re-enactment

Join this Saxon re-enactment portraying a migratory group of Saxons from the period in this country when the Romans had just left. Acting out a travelling encampment, peopled by children through to older folk, this troop provides the feel of a genuine tribe on the move. See warriors with their weapons and armour, travelling blacksmiths and carpenters as well as cooking demos of what the group would have eaten at the time. Join us for this fascinating piece of history.
