In the grounds of one of Europe’s largest cathedrals, discover the lives of early Anglo-Saxon settlers in Hampshire and the surrounding counties through an accurate portrayal of early medieval life. Come and see us for our timed displays!

Weorod are a small, specialist group of Historical Interpreters focused on the Early Anglo-Saxon period – 450-680 or thereabouts. Based in Hampshire they have a passion for the local archaeology and history displaying many museum-quality replica artefacts from the local archaeological record. They demonstrate period crafts and discuss ancient technologies continuously throughout the day so there is always something going on.

Whether you have a passing interest in history, or are an Anglo-Saxon enthusiast there will be plenty for you to see and enjoy. Suitable for all members of the family, Weorod’s costumed interpreters will delight in showing you the highlights of the Anglo-Saxon age from fashion and textiles to weapons and war gear, with many other topics in between.
