Anglo-Saxon Re-enactors at Bamburgh Castle

To celebrate the conclusion of Festival of British Archaeology this week, Bamburgh Castle is hosting a group of Anglo-Saxon re-enactors in the West Ward, where they will be re-creating a sense of what life in and around Bamburgh Castle may have been like during the Saxon period. They’ll be in the Castle on Saturday 31st July and Sunday 1st August – more details about the event, and information about Castle admission costs and times is available on the Bamburgh Castle website.

The staff and students here at the BRP are really looking forward to having the re-enacting team on site; they offer us a great insight into the world of the people we are seeking to understand – an oddly shaped metal object or curiously worn bone find can suddenly make rather a lot more sense when you see the object it was part of in use!
