Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

New resource for a new school year ‘What was it like to live in Anglo-Saxon Lyminge?’

Looking for resources to support KS 2 History in the coming year? Then this new curriculum pack from Canterbury Archaeological Trust Education Service could help you. The pack is a product of the highly successful Lyminge Archaeological Project which  Reading University ran each summer from 2007 to 2014.  It is written by Trust staff member Andy Macintosh who worked on the excavations with the Reading team and who delivers workshops in local primary schools.

What was it like to live in Anglo-Saxon Lyminge?’ tells a rich story of the development of an Anglo-Saxon settlement, drawing together evidence from archaeological excavations and documentary sources. There are linked classroom activities to help children develop history, geography and literacy skills plus information about borrowing handling collections from Canterbury Archaeological Trust.
