This project was undertaken at Fellview Community Primary School, which is found in the small rural village of Caldbeck in North Cumbria. Nestled in the Northern Fells, this village is perhaps best known as the resting place of huntsman John Peel, immortalised in the song 'D'yea ken John Peel' but it was also a hive of industry just prior to the industrial revolution. It is now a popular destination for tourists looking for a place 'off the beaten track'. Many of the children in the project school live on farms in the area so the rural Anglo-Saxon way of life is perhaps closer to their own lives than the Roman theme, where there is often an emphasis on Roman soldiers, roads, towns and cities. The Anglo-Saxon period was also an era that I had little experience of teaching in school, so I was keen to rectify this.
