An Anglo Saxon drama adventure day for families exploring the mystery of the Staffordshire Hoard.

Buried History is an exciting participatory drama with interactive digital activities exploring Anglo Saxon life and culture. Travel back in time to the 7th century, when the powerful Kingdom of Mercia was engaged in battles over territory between Christians and Pagans. It’s during this volatile time that it’s believed that the Staffordshire Hoard was buried. 

Discovered by chance in a field by a metal detectorist, the Hoard is the largest cache of Anglo Saxon gold and silver ever found, comprising thousands of beautiful and intricate objects. Despite years of painstaking research, how and why it came to be buried and who it belonged to remains a mystery. Can you solve this archaeological whodunnit?

Buried History has been created by The Play House theatre in education company in partnership with Birmingham Museums and digital specialists C&T.

From 11am - 2pm in the Learning Zone. Please bring a packed lunch.

£3 per person. Pre-booking is essential.

To book please phone 0121 348 8038 or book online.
