Virtual Visit Details

Your class will receive a video call from Alfred the Great, the most famous Saxon cyning (king) who ever lived. Sit up, listen and show your respects to the great leader as he tells you about:

• His childhood experiences (such as meeting the Pope) and how these have shaped his Christian beliefs
• The battle of Edington where Alfred defeated Guthrum in 878
• The Saxon kingdoms and why Wessex, is the greatest of them all
• How his son Edward’s love for fighting might ruin all of his peace-making to date...
• How art, music, story-telling and feasting make being king of the Anglo-Saxon’s the best job in the world!

A live, interactive performance followed by Q&A.
