This half term put your archaeological skills to the test by solving the mystery of the ancient Saxon burial.

Children will be challenged to work out who was buried over 1000 years ago and why.

The sessions run at The Hive will allow children uncover a mysterious Saxon burial, and to follow in the footsteps of the Anglo Saxons making a clay amulet to take home.

There will be three sessions throughout the day on Wednesday 30th October, each lasting 45 minutes.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, cabinet member with responsibility for communities at Worcestershire County Council said, “This is such a fun activity for children to get involved with this half term, and a brilliant way to learn more about the Anglo-Saxons and about the work that is undertaken by our archaeology teams. We are very proud of our award winning Archive and Archaeology Service, and hope that events like this might inspire the next generation of archaeologist.”

Experts from Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, will be on hand running the sessions, and sharing their experience.

The event is suitable for ages 7+ and booking is required.

Tickets are £3 per child, and available on The Hive website.
