Eadig the Saxon

Barbarian invasion?

Born in Britain as the last vestiges of Roman power fade, Eadig is a gesiĆ°a (warrior) of a minor king fighting for terrority against other Saxons and the Britons who have lived on their land for countless generations. But he'll tell you that life is about far more than fighting: Learn what Saxons did for fun, what their language sounded like, what their everyday objects were and looked like and even what they thought the best way to die was!

Your students will see what a heavy-armed Saxon warrior looked like...and maybe how heavy his armour was. They'll play period games, examine reproduction artefacts, compose riddles and learn to count in a language over a thousand years old.
