Paws for thought with Murphy

This week it’s been a very busy one at Ufton History, with lots of Roman, Viking and Tudor residential and day visits. It’s also been very hot, but nice and dry … I’ve had more than the one ‘you must be such a hot-dog jokes’

I’ve taken part in so many pawsome activities over the last week including;

  • Learning how to build Roman trebuchets and the importance of fortifications to defend our base from enemies
  • Creating leaf crowns from natural objects to prepare for our Roman feast
  • The importance of archery during Viking times to collect food such as wild boar, rabbits or pheasant
  • Learning about what happens if you break the law during the Tudor times in the Crime and Punishment activity

We’re also starting to enter the Wedding season at Ufton Weddings – the smell of sausages on the BBQ is ALWAYS wafting around the grounds over the weekends, which is oh so very tempting. I even managed to sneak into the barn and help with setting up last weekend… I was met by a very unfriendly looking object though.

With only one week left to go until the end of term, I cannot wait to enjoy the last few days of History Adventures with my favourite pals.

Speak to you soon.
