A family fun weekend celebrating the launch of the Treasures of St Cuthbert exhibition, on permanent display in Open Treasure from Saturday 29 July. Meet the Anglo-Saxon traders, raiders and craftspeople as they take up temporary residence within the Cathedral grounds and let your senses delight in the sights, sounds and smells from a bygone era.
See demonstrations of pastimes and skills that filled their daily life. Be amazed by the 10m long ship and find out about Anglo-Saxon navigation, fishing and net making. Learn about building crafts and architectural thinking of the day. Join in with games, grind flour using a quern stone, try on some Anglo-Saxon clothing, prepare yourself for battle, paint using natural pigments and much more – the choice is yours! An exciting and educational experience for everyone.
