What is it?

Who will protect the Briton’s from the new invaders? Come face to face with warriors from the time of the legendary King Arthur and see the skills and horsemanship of a fast paced duo of cavalry soldiers from this epic period of history. Junior warriors can also have a go at dark-age pottery.
