On 22nd February a new batch of recruits will arrive for training at Holyrood Park. A P4 class from Clovenstone Primary School will be learning about the people who inhabited the Edinburgh area around 600AD through the epic Celtic poem ‘Y Gododdin’ which recounts the tale of a mighty war band feasting in ‘Din Eidyn’ before riding off to a disastrous defeat by the Angles at the battle of ‘Catraeth’.

The new band of warriors will be creating their own epic poem to recount their adventures on the day so check back soon to find out how they got on!
