West Stow was given funding from the Heritage Lottery Young Roots fund to work with young people (aged 11-25) and professional archaeologists to systematically dismantle the house and excavate the pit that remains.
Between October 2015 and April 2016 a group of 17 young people worked together on this project and this blog recorded what they did at each stage.
Signals taught the Young Roots group filmmaking skills and helped to create this short film which links the objects from the museum to the Saxon village.
Soon the film will be featured in the museum!
