The story of the sword from forge to the fight was the latest historical re-enactment to grace West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village over the Easter weekend.

Dark Ages group Ormsgard focused on how swords are made and show-cased a combat display.

There was also blacksmithing and drop spinning and children were given the chance to get to grips with foam weapons.

A variety of re-enactment groups will be appearing at West Stow over the summer.
