This unique, reconstructed village and Anglo-Saxon museum, surrounded by the 125 acres that makes up the West Stow Country Park, is a must see for history enthusiasts, the St Edmundsbury Chronicle gives more information on the Anglo-Saxons. The Anglo-Saxon Village, based on the site of an excavation, depicts life in early Anglo-Saxon times (circa 420 to 650 AD).
