Medieval Days is supplier for history workshops. The owner, Peter Balanck, has been visiting schools for over 6 years and provides workshops covering Roman, Saxon, Viking, Medieval, Tudor and Stuart periods of English history
A feature of all Medieval Days workshops is the massive quantity of resources that Peter brings with him to the school, all of which can be handles by the children. You can expect to see helmets , swords, medieval and period armour, and a longbow with hand made arrows. The pupils can dress up in period clothes, spin wool, create artwork with old carvings, play with historical toys and every child strikes a hammered coin using the original coin dies and blanks. They keep their coin to take home!
