Anglo Saxon burial will take place at World Museum Liverpool’s festival
AN ANGLO-SAXON burial will be re-enacted in Liverpool this weekend as part of a festival at the World Museum.
The burial is part of a series of events aimed at teaching children the importance of archaeology in learning about our heritage.
Aimed at families, the free event will take place on Sunday, July 19, inside the World Museum Liverpool.
Roleplayer Linda Rae said: “Anglo-Saxon burials were important because of their symbolism and cycle of life.
“It is time to look again at how they lived. We are really excited by their story.”
“We really hope this festival excites the children who come to the museum.
“We are hoping that this becomes an annual event as the Anglo-Saxon story continues to unfold.”
Spokesman for the World Museum Liverpool, Stephen Guy, said: “This is a great opportunity to find out what clues are unearthed from the lives of people who lived in England more than a thousand years ago.”
The museum is one of the countries leading centres for exhibiting archaeological finds from across the world.
The festival is free and is open from 11.00am till 4pm. www.liverpoolmuseums.org
