I met some Anglo-Saxons today at the museum. They were from a group called Weorod. I wore my Anglo-Saxon dress that my Mummy had made me.
They showed me how the Anglo-Saxons lived 1600 years ago.
They had a replica helmet of the Sutton Hoo helmet and I helped to make a panel out of metal.
I placed the metal piece over the design and hammered over it.
Once it was done, I had a piece that could be made into a helmet.
I saw the types of foods that the Anglo-Saxons would eat.
I ground some grains with a quern stone.
I saw the lady making ribbon on a hand loom. They would use this as a border for their clothes.
They could change the design of the ribbon, by twisting the pegs.
They also made glass beads.
Then I had a go with the Anglo-Saxon weaponry!
