St Albans Cathedral’s History activity, Saxons & Vikings, for your students.

It was during the reign of the Saxon King Offa that the first monastery was built in St Albans. Our Saxon Trail, Viking Trail, Invaders & Settlers Trail and Saxon Food Workshop explore the impact of the Saxons and the Vikings on both a local and national level.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and artefacts to help students develop their learning, whilst workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
