The Trade Tent is a small business actively supporting the work carried out by the Ancient Technology Centre. Both on-site and online. We believe the any gift bought in association with the ATC should be in line with their ethos so we have endeavoured to hand produce and select quality items.

At The Trade Tent we hand make leather tankards, bags and pouches supported by archaeological finds from the Iron Age through to the Tudor periods in Britain and Northern Europe. We have also bought together additional goods to create an exiting range of historically based products suitable for adults to older children, re-enactors to historians to those who are looking for an elusive gift

The Trade Tent is actively supporting the ATC through several means – physically, by attending their open events and residential groups, through spreading the word about the Centre though this site and when attending outside events, and financially – all sales of goods from The Trade Tent result in a contribution to the work carried out at the ATC.

Scoppa Ltd is a new venture for the ATC. For the first time we will have a dedicated shop on site selling quality local and historical wares. We will be selling a wide range of products from Roman beakers to beeswax candles. Currently these can only be purchased during your visit to the Ancient Technology Centre. Do make sure you pop in to take home an authentic momento!

*Scoppa is old English for; a shop, a booth or a shed for trade or work.

We are in the process of updating the site facilities to include wifi access and card payment services……watch this space!
