On the 19th and 20th of May students from classes Vb, Vc and Vd visited The Slavs and Vikings Centre in Wolin.
In the Slavs and Vikings Centre in Wolin, they took part in
old-time artisanship workshops for children.
Surrounded by the reconstructed early mediaeval buildings in Wolin, the
participants of the “Live History Lessons” learned how to make pottery and
felt, to write using a goose feather quill, to shoot a bow, as well as
many other mediaeval practices. They also learnt the rules of
fighting from the old times and had an opportunity to try unleavened
bread coated with wild honey, jam, old style cheese curds, or lard – all
this washed down with traditional herbal teas.
In addition, students played various games on a “historic” playground. During the activities, children not only learnt
new facts about old Wolin and about life in the Middle Ages, but they
also “experienced history” through active participation in the workshops
and through hands-on practices. All this helped to bring to life the
everyday activities of a thousand years ago.
