Two moving stories from the 12th century are featured on the CD Suffolk Tales. "The Wild Man of Orford" and "The Green Children" both deal with strange creatures from elsewhere who challenge the generosity of the locals. An accompanying booklet gives the historical context and makes suggestions for using the stories within the literacy strategy at key sage 2. Told in a mixture of narrative and dramatised dialect, they bring the Middle Ages to life while making provocative connections with our own age.
