These simple games are being trialled as ways of 'having fun with heritage'.
They need to be tested on as many devices/browsers as possible.
Please give them a go on ahweb.org.uk/games
If you find anything wrong with one, let me know at info usual at sign rgspaces.org.uk
Thanks, Annette (Haworth, trustee/volunteer RG Spaces charity number: 1160023)
Angry Bird’s ancestor was completely cheesed off with the two sides in the Civil War as they battled it out in the Forbury in front of Reading Abbey. He made himself into a canon ball and gave them a pasting. (The Parliamentarians and Cavaliers did fight in Reading – you can see a canon ball in the Museum).
Pull the catapultee back and release towards its enemies.
