Tamworth Aethelflaed Festival

Come and find out what life was like for those living in Tamworth during Saxon times. Learn about our very own warrior princess Aethelflaed, Lady of the Mercians, find out about  Saxon battle tactics, take your place in the shield -wall and see if you can solve our runic puzzles! Have a go at digging for artefacts and find out about Saxon archaeology as you discover how objects can tell us about the past;  and finally follow the riddles in the Castle rooms and claim a small prize if you complete the quiz sheet!
