Cromwellian Artefacts

Year 5 had the amazing opportunity to have in school a genuine sword and cannonball from the Civil War period. Linked to our history topic about the fall of Basing House during the Civil War, this was a chance to see a primary historical source. The sword was a Scottish Basket-hilt sword, thought to be Italian and possible used at the time of the Civil War. The cannon ball was excavated by archaeologists in the 1970s from Basing House.
