Life on the Manor at Agecroft Hall

Description: Running a large manor house like Agecroft Hall in seventeenth-century England required many helping hands. Students are introduced to the lifestyles of the servants and gentry through several activities including: the slide presentation “A Day at Agecroft,” which depicts costumed interpreters engaged in daily and seasonal seventeenth-century activities; a guided tour of the museum; handling reproduction sixteenth- and seventeenth-century objects; and playing outdoor seventeenth-century lawn games. In inclement weather, students remain indoors for hands-on activities such as creating an herbal sachet or playing a popular board game of the time called merels.
