The Watlington Hoard

We've all been having a lot of fun learning about the Watlington Hoard.  We have found out all about the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the contents of the hoard itself and had a chance to handle both some replicas and some genuine ancient artefacts.  Some of our work will be on display at the special event in town on Saturday 23rd September.
