Craft: Medieval Love Tokens

Learn about how Lords and Ladies in Medieval Ireland would gift each other special tokens as signs of affection and love.

Download and print our 'Medieval Love Token' resource to find out more about the special brooches that men and women would give to each other as a love token or to carry into battle for good luck. Use the template to design and decorate your own brooch at home. To find out more about Medieval Ireland check out our Medieval Ireland Exhibition page.

When you have completed your Love Token, why not send us a picture to or post a photo online through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MuseumAtHome.

This activity is designed for children aged 7-12 years old and is curriculum linked to the SESE History Curriculum. This can be completed at home, as a family activity, or used by Primary school teachers and students.
