6/3: West Stow anglo-saxon village

With spring weather coming we decided to visit West Stow anglo-saxon village and museum.
The ruins of that site and these in general of the time, allow only to have a good guess about how they build villages, houses etc.
However it was quite shocking to see how they were willing to face the winter.
Apparently they use to take a bath only in summer seasons and during winter they cover their bodies with animal fat.

Rachele was impressed a lot and very interested especially in the museum.
Two days later she was playing about saxons... she found Paolo's vaseline cream, put all of it in her body, including hair, and she claim to be ready for the winter season!
