During April this year, South Downs Generations project manager, Chris Hare, gave talks to primary school children about life in the South Downs and England generally, during the years 900 – 1300 AD. His talk to Year 5 and 6 children at Findon School on Tuesday 27th April was recorded. The talk has been edited into two parts – one on the Anglo-Saxon era, and one on the Norman Conquest and the medieval years up until the fourteenth century. A list of contents appears on the YouTube link, which we hope will help teachers wishing to identify historical themes they may wish to incorporate into their teaching.
