Life long learning

Education at the Trust is supported by its rare combination of resources, which include the site itself, two timber-frame houses and the archaeological artefacts belonging to the place.
The Trust has strong links with several universities, whose staff are closely involved with our projects. Their research feeds into our workshops and demonstrates that accepted knowledge is constantly expanding.
The workshops are enquiry based and incorporate hands-on activities designed to enhance the learning experience. By dividing large classes into small groups, we are able to provide intensively-supported workshops, which give everyone the opportunity to work creatively with primary evidence. Students are encouraged to discuss their ideas and listen to the opinions of their peers. This exposes them to new concepts and ignites interests in subjects they may not have encountered before.
