For the first half term we will be studying the Anglo Saxons and our Mantle of the Expert (MoE ) Drama promises to be as exciting as ‘A Game of Thrones!’
A team of history researchers are commissioned by the BBC to do the background research for a series of programmes inspired by Tony Bradman’s book ‘ Anglo Saxon Boy ‘ and to tell the real story of the Anglo Saxons from the 1st invasion of Britain up to 1066.
They learn the villagers were part of a civilisation which was displaced from their homeland, settled in Britain, and created a culture which thrived for over 500 years before being destroyed by defeat at the battle of Hastings.
