Jarrow Hall Anglo-Saxon Farm Village and Bede Museum

About

Discover the incredible world of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria and the extraordinary life of the Venerable Bede, the father of English history.

Jarrow Hall features, at its heart, a museum dedicated to exploring the fascinating life and legacy of Bede, an extensive, working Anglo-Saxon demonstration farm and reconstructed Anglo-Saxon dwellings.

Bede museum tells the story of the Venerable Bede and his time, from the beginnings of the Anglo-Saxon period through Bede’s life, death and extraordinary legacy. Widely regarded as the ‘father of English history’, Bede was an author, scholar, skilled linguist and translator who also composed works on astronomical timekeeping and the motions of the sun, Earth and Moon.

An English monk at the double monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow, his most famous work is The Ecclesiastical History of the English People. One of the most important original references on Anglo-Saxon history, this work also played a key role in the development of an English national identity.

 

The Anglo-Saxon Farm and Village is a great place to discover why farming was so important in daily Anglo-Saxon life. Home to curly-coated pigs, Dexter bullocks, sheep, goats, ducks, chickens and more, this 11-acre site houses rare breeds which are the closest possible representatives of the animals that would have been present 1300 years ago.

The farm is complemented by a number of replica wattle and daub and timber-framed buildings based on structures excavated within Anglo-Saxon Northumbria, and is a green haven in the middle of Jarrow.

 

Open every weekend from 7th January before our full launch in April 2017, Jarrow Hall is suitable for visitors of all ages.
