Anglo Saxon Tools Talk- Bedes World- 25/10/14

Bede’s World Museum, Church Bank, Jarrow

12noon, 25 October

A talk by Dennis Riley about Anglo-Saxon Tools.  Dennis Riley is a well-respected author and has published a book on Anglo-Saxon Tools. He tells us ‘the tools used in Anglo-Saxon England were much like those found elsewhere in Europe at that time. They have been found in graves and buried tool-hoards. Others seem to be accidental losses or to have been discarded due to wear or damage. Most are surprisingly like those in use today.’
