This year we are going to look at an earlier age, starting from the Roman invasion and going up to the Battle of Hastings.
In short, we are going to metamorphose into Ancient Britons.
As usual, we will pick out the interesting people, like Caractacus and Boadicea and King Arthur.
We will look at the Saxons and Vikings, who played such a part in making us what we are.
Don’t forget Alfred (of cakes fame) and those people with funny names who had love affairs and battles, and Canute, and Edward the Confessor and poor old Harold.
We will have lots of videos and just a bit of talking from me (some would say, quite a lot, really).
And we will have some days out. Lincoln and York are obvious ones. Maybe there are others.
We will explore the possibilities together. Should be a great year. I am looking forward to it

A charge of £11 will be made towards the rent
