Saxons invade Butser Ancient Farm this Easter

Opening Hours:  Visit BAF

 Butser Ancient Farm in Clanfield is preparing for an Anglo Saxon invasion this Easter weekend.  Hampshire based re-enactment group, Herigeas Hundas, will be taking up residence in the Farm’s Saxon Hall to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Herigeas Hundas boast a wide range of expertise in ancient skills: blacksmithing; weaving and sewing; traditional wood working and much more.  The group will also be demonstrating their fighting expertise using a whole array of ancient weapons. 

Don’t miss the battle combat demonstrations on Easter Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 2pm: the Battle of the Champions tournament will take place at 2pm on Sunday with warriors pitted against each other to find the Herigeas Hundas Champion for the year.

Butser Ancient Farm – an exciting weekend for the whole family!
