Families can see for themselves how our Anglo-Saxon ancestors would have prepared for the winter.

During half-term this week living history group Ynglingas has moved into West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, near Bury St Edmunds.

There have been demonstrations of Anglo-Saxon crafts including woodwork, textiles, metalwork and cooking.

West Stow is one of the venues which is taking part in West Suffolk Arts 4 Families, which is currently under way and is connected the national Family Arts Festival.

The Family Arts Festival is devised with arts professionals and families and draws on research to tackle the barriers to family participation at arts events.

Ynglingas will be at West Stow until Sunday.
