Traders & Raiders

We’ve put together a range of resources and activities based on our Early Settlers workshops and the handling resources we normally use with schools. Each section will focus on something different such as Saxons and Vikings, but don’t feel like you have to do the whole topic in one day.

These resources are aimed at KS2 but can also be used to introduce the topic to other year groups too. If you need any support or additional material please get in touch.



Discover the fascinating story behind the Anglo-Saxon collection on display at Preston Park Museum and how it helps us to understand what it was like living in these times.


Explore the Viking treasures found in Tees Valley including the beautifully carved Kirklevington Stones and the Yarm Viking Helmet. Find out about the myths and legends within the stones as well as how these treasures help us understand how the Vikings lived.
