In the Invasion project, we will explore the effects of the Roman withdrawal and the chronology and geography of subsequent invasions. We will study the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in detail, examining their reasons for invading, their settlements and their everyday life. We will also look at monasteries and the Anglo-Saxon legacy. We will consider how we know about life in this period and investigate the Sutton Hoo ship burial. We will also learn about Athelstan, an Anglo-Saxon king, and what happened after his death, before ending the project by learning about the Norman invasion of 1066.
