Speakers included

Chas Jones author of “Finding Fulford- The Search for the First Battle of 1066”
Stephen Harding author of “Ingimunds Saga – Viking Wirral” and “Viking Mersey”

Attendees were also taken for a walking tour around Storeton and were treated to a display of  replica weapons and tools by members of Wirhalh Skip Felagr along with some finds made locally by Wirral Archaelogy.
The event has received great feedback and was hopefully thought provoking to those attending.
