This hugely popular Viking workshop covers everything from home-life to battles, Gods and how to have fun, Viking-style.
Our Viking warriors have been successfully raiding schools for nearly twenty years and, in much the same way that the original Vikings left an enduring mark on Britain, they leave a lasting impression on pupils and teachers like.
The day starts with a short talk, followed by a number of activities for the children to take part in, such as:
- Play Fox and Geese the viking board game
- A Viking quiz
- Having fun with kennings
- Life at home – a chance to examine a range of artefacts from cooking pots and utensils to an ironing board and combs (the girls soon learn what was expected of them 1200 years ago!)
- A weapons and armour display
- Viking Spear wrestling
- Viking battle

Our Viking workshop leaders have appeared in many historical documentaries and feature films, as well as the BBC’s “Horrible Histories”.
