THE NORMAN INVASION (1 hr.)
This workshop is available signed

After a triple battle between, Harold Godwinson, William of Normandy and Harald Hardrada, we find out which one of them, is going to rule England after Edward The Confessor's reign. We finish our battles at Hastings to see William crowned as King with Queen Matilda by his side. In order to protect England from any other invaders, the villages are instructed to build a Motte and Bailey Castle.

Learning how they managed to build so many, in a short space of time. Farming methods were very important to the survival of the community and we take a look at how the feudal system worked from the King down to the peasants. As usual all the children participate by dressing up and becoming different characters, with lots of controlled swords play.
