Here at the Time Detective Agency, we’re putting our new recruits through their basic training. Do you have what it takes to help us with our time travel missions in Historic Winchester? Can you blend in with our Anglo-Saxons and take notes in your field agent’s notebook at 878AD?


Every new member of the Time Detective Agency needs to complete test in the field, so now is the perfect time to put your skills to the test and travel back in time as an undercover Anglo-Saxon! You'll receive your field agent’s notebook to write down anything interesting you discover. You’ll notice we have different job roles throughout the week, so why not return to see if you can master them all?
