Thynghowe is a Viking age assembly site in Birklands on the western edge of Sherwood Forest. Deep within the woodlands surrounding Thynghowe there are still features to be found that tell the stories of King Edwin of Northumbria, King John's royal hunting Forest and the development of the ducal estates. Join us to retrace the lives of the woodsmen and people of this area over a period from the 7th century to World War II. Help us to discover the lost history of Sherwood Forest.
