Event Details

During lock down our team have been busy refreshing our museum exhibition. We want to take a closer look at farming in Anglo-Saxon times, how it developed and how it is different to the way we farm today. What kinds of animals did Monks keep at Jarrow? What did they keep them for? Visit our re-vamped exhibition to find the answers to all these questions and more. Don’t forget to  ask for your trail sheet at reception!  

Behátland means ‘promised land’ in Old English. Farming changed the relationship between humans and nature forever, transforming the landscape and creating a bond between people, land, and animals. 

Explore the theme of agriculture through time in our new exhibition.  Learn about the different types of animal who live on our farm and find out how agriculture has changed over time.
