Artist's Description

On our recent trip to Murton Park, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, we spent time in the afternoon wondering around the park’s attractions, including the historically accurate replica of a Viking village in the Dark Ages. It was fascinating to see the homes and the decorations. One of the most wonderful of the buildings here in this mock village was this one. It was considered the village hall, or meeting place. This is where meetings were held, social or perhaps even religious events, and evening gatherings. It could have been similar to the local pub,, business exchange, canteen, or Working Mens Club. This was the hub of life in the village. I can imagine it, with all the people sitting around on the ground or the window seats, the fire blazing, and everyone talking. Not such a bad thought ehh?

Murton Park and the various projects here, especially the Dark Age / Viking village and the Roman Fort are supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the National Lottery.
