  • Vikings

HALF DAY (approx. 2 hours)

Pupils are invited to visit our Viking settlement where they will be subject to Viking law and customs. They will be taken into the home of a Viking skald, who will explain the ‘Viking Way’ and give children the opportunity to take part in the daily household chores of Viking life.

Our Viking warrior will instruct them in all things Viking: gods, farms, ships, raiding and of course fighting! If you are brave enough maybe you will get to stand in a shield wall beside our Viking warrior!
