October's Playing with the Past club meeting took the form of a site visit to Old Sarum. This visit was organised in association with English Heritage and the Army Welfare Service.
The 8-16 year olds learnt how to fight like Vikings, dressed up as Medieval knights and handled archaeological artefacts from the local area. The visit, led by English Heritage staff, introduced the group to the various uses of the site throughout history and explored the role of archaeology in teaching us these things.
This FREE club will be held on the third Saturday of each month at the Beeches Community Centre in Bulford. Meetings will cover a range of interesting archaeological topics and periods and feature hands-on activities and games.
