Life in a Blacksmith’s Household

Life in a Blacksmith’s Household

Event details

Pario Gallico and Beynon the Blacksmith travel to West Stow

Come and watch the blacksmith transform iron into various objects on the forge - you might even get a chance to help him pump the bellows!

Discover what Anglo-Saxon villagers were eating, far from the bland gruel or porridge usual idea. The lady of the house will give tips and tricks on how to light and maintain a good fire, how to cook in pots and cauldrons over it, how to wash up the Anglo-Saxon way and share her own recipes so you can recreate them at home!
