The Anglo-Saxon way of doing things made a comeback at Windsor Museum this week.
Children visiting the museum at the Guildhall yesterday saw Mary Paul and Janet Scotton from the Berkshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers.
They were demonstrating how clothes were spun and woven 1,000 years ago, using the sort of loom people worked on then.
They also had the chance to see artefacts from that period in history, before William the Conqueror built the first castle at Windsor.
A second Anglo-Saxon day takes place at the museum on Saturday.
Sessions run from noon to 1.30pm and 2pm to 3.30pm.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
