It is AD 878, news has spread that Viking Invaders are in their longboats, journeying across the stormy seas, around the rocky British coast, safely up the Thames to finally settle at Fulham. How do we know all that? Who told us and what can we do to learn more?

29 August – Tudors

Katherine of Aragon has been sent to Fulham Palace to rest after suffering a terrible illness. Travel back in time to the Tudor period and train as an apothecary in order to cure Katherine of Aragon. Discover Tudor medicine by taking a look inside an apothecary’s bag and exploring different herbs and their remedial qualities. Will we be able to cure Katherine?
