1066 (and all that)

There is a great history site, called Hands on History, on the BBC covering Norman times. There’s a clickable map that shows up lists of interesting activities across Britain relating to Normans. But of particular interest is the downloads page, which has a host of pdf with things to do with children, including building a Motte and Bailey castle, information sheets with what to look for in Norman churches and castles, and a 1066 Battle of Hastings game for 7-11 year olds to play.

There’s also a free Normans pull-out timeline to send off for.

Perhaps for the older children there is an online strategy battle game of 1066 from Channel 4.
