Medieval Days

Interactive Living History Visits

Stories, Artefacts, Costumes, Coin Making

and a whole lot of history.

The Medieval Days experience will treat your students to a real sneak peek into historical life, and a day that they’ll never forget…


  • Why are Vikings often illustrated with horned helmets?

  • What was Henry VIII called by his friends?                ( not Henry! )

  • Was the toga worn in Roman Britain?

  • How did Merlin appear in British history?

  • Could you write with a real quill pen?

  • Did the Saxons suffer from bad stomachs?

  • Where did Humpty Dumpty originate?

  • Which men were recorded as having tails?

  • What did Queen Elizabeth I brush her teeth with?

  • Who were the “hangers on?”

Some answers may surprise you……​

Find out all this and more with our engaging workshop days hosted by our talented team dressed to suit the time period of your choosing. 

We can offer a workshop set to one particular theme or time period or a whistle stop tour of the Celts through to the Stuarts. 

Everyone who attends gets to strike and keep their own silver coin with designs authentic to the time period as well as handle a number of fascinating artefacts, try on many costume pieces and explore and use the every day items of years gone by. There are even some prizes to hand out to the competitive ones amongst your group.
