The Vikings Invade

4th September, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5th September, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

The Vikings are back! After a year away from the site the Vikings have returned. Are you ready for it?
See them take on the local Anglo Saxons in battle – and meet warriors from both sides. Plus discover what life was really like 1,000 years ago when Danish King Guthrum came to England.
Families can get stuck in to Viking life with a children’s battle, and in our Big Dig Tent, where they can learn all about an archaeological dig.
Admission charges apply: £5 children, £8 adults, £20 families (2 adults, 3 children). Under 5s free. You can just drop in for Viking family fun, there is no need to book in advance. Parking is free.
