Free online workshop 2: Norman Conquest and tithe barn moneyboxes

Free online workshop 2: Norman Conquest and tithe barn moneyboxes

With the help of MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Scheme is offering all budding archaeologists and historians a chance to learn from an expert, find out more about the history across the local landscape and get crafty too. Two special free webinars on October 26 and October 29, for children aged 7-11 years and their families will explore archaeology and the fascinating story of the past beneath our feet.

The first webinar on Monday 26 October at 2pm looks at Roman pottery and shows how to make salt dough pottery. Roman pottery kilns have been found across the Land of the Fanns in Thurrock, Romford and in Grays. The second webinar on Thursday 29 October at 2pm, is all about the Norman Conquest and its impact on the Land of the Fanns area. The medieval barn in Upminster is similar to Norman tithe barns and will look at how to make a tithe barn money box.

MOLA’s travelling archaeology exhibition has been seen at several Land of the Fanns events in the past. In the current situation, while MOLA and the Land of the Fanns cannot run events, they have worked together to create these innovative webinars which will be a lasting resource for parents and schools to use to bring history alive.
