An authentic step back in time. Our replica Anglo-Saxon House is modelled on a traditional house of the period 410 to 1066, built sympathetically in line with traditional building design and material.
The House is ideally suited to activity visits, historically accurate and in a supreme setting. Our Saxon days can include instructor, clothing and weapons, subject to your requirements. Living the life of a Saxon will assist children in retaining the information that they learn while enjoying themselves in the process! It is an ideal means of supporting classroom learning.
However, the House is not just suited to the young… it is a perfect location for film and media, together with re-enactment groups such as Live Action Role Play.
Carved some 10 years ago, these stones were formed under a heritage project undertaken by a group of young adults then based at the Wilderness Centre. The project subsequently won the Heritage Lottery Fund South West Region Young People ‘Heritage Heroes’ award in 2005.
They worked with Gloucestershire County Council’s Archaeology and Youth Services departments with the aim of studying the Anglo Saxons and creating Anglo-Saxon designs, but with a contemporary feel. They undertook extensive research, visiting many sites, studying sculptures and learning to live life as an Anglo-Saxon.
There are seven stones in total, six modelled from Portland stone as it was easy to sculpt. The seventh was carved from Forest stone obtained from the Wilderness Quarry, standing apart from the others. The stones are laid out in the shape of a constellation known as the Sculptor’s Studio.
