Here be dragons!

Mike’s wonderful dragon head carving was added to the longhall this week and will hopefully fulfill its job of scaring away evil spirits. The head is based on a very small bit of Anglo-Saxon metalwork, with the cherry wood tongue adding a nice twist. The walls of the Saxon longhall are gradually filling up and the building is becoming more impressive, just in time for another series of The Last Kingdom on the telly. The Saxon health and safety team have also been at work in the mezzanine.

The Roman building is having a second coat of limewash on the long sides and is beginning to sparkle in the sunlight.
