Koalas Class – Walk Around Highworth

To start our topic on Building a settlement (Anglo-Saxons), Koala class went for a walk around Highworth. We were looking for the oldest buildings in the town and also for clues to show whether a building was modern or old. The oldest stone we found was the tympanum in St Michael’s church which was created at the end of the Anglo-Saxon period. We also got special permission to look in an old courtyard and see for ourselves how the ground level has changed over time!
