Excavating History at Butser Farm

13th May 21

Yesterday our year 3 pupils travelled back in time to find out how the Romans and Anglo-Saxons lived.

During a fascinating visit to Butser Ancient Farm, the girls created their own jewellery, calved chalk designs and excavated treasures in an archaeological dig. They also sat around a traditional fire in an Anglo-Saxon house and explored a Roman villa.

What a fantastic day in the sunshine!

Fin fact: Did you know that some scenes from ‘Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans’ were filmed on location at Butser Farm!
