Emma, James and Kim Bring the “Terrible Tudors” to Life in Leominster

20 December 2016

Shedding light on the “Terrible Tudors” through examples of medieval pottery, tokens and other artefacts in use at that time, Emma Hardy, James Link and Kim Doolan of Border Archaeology addressed an audience of eager youngsters from Luston Primary school.

The pupils enjoyed a ‘hands-on’ presentation of finds from previous excavations at Waverley House dating from hundreds of years prior to the care home being built.

Supporting Shaw Healthcare in their commitment to engage with local communities, we hope to have sparked an interest in the pupils to discover more about their surroundings and local history.

Alan Riley, manager of Waverley House care home, added: “It was fascinating to find out about the history of our home’s site and get a glimpse into what was going on all those hundreds of years ago during the reigns of monarchs, such as Henry VIII.  The kids were really excited, but I think our staff were just as keen to take a look!”
