1066 and all that

18 October 2017

The most famous battle in English history came to life at Wally on Tuesday, when Year 7 girls re-enacted the Battle of Hastings, complete with chainmail and crossbows.

Students divided into Anglo-Saxons and Normans to follow the course of the battle and they handled armour and weaponry to help them get into the mindset of a medieval soldier.

The highlight of the workshop was having a go at firing either a longbow or crossbow on the front lawn.
