This Local History Mystery has been created by our Schools Manager Helen Sinnamon as a learning resource and can be used by schools and home-schooling parents, or anyone with an interest in history.
The film is suitable for children studying Key Stage 2 History, focusing on Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots. In particular, the subject of Anglo-Saxon art and culture.
The film closely examines the evidence of the 1500 year old Alton Buckle, now on display at the Curtis Museum in Alton, to consider what the Dark Ages were really like.
