Year 3 classes were delighted to invite Eric Ericsson to Anson Primary to tell them more about what it was like to be an Anglo-Saxon. He brought a host of amazing animal skins, clothing, jewellery, tools, games, armour and weapons which the children got to touch, try on and ask questions about. They also learnt about Anglo-Saxon families, medicine, trials and battle cries as you can see in this video.
