School Days | Vikings and Anglo-Saxons


What will happen in the day?


We “de-bunk” the Vikings, and consider them as settlers, raiders and traders. We look at the Anglo-Saxon and Viking Wars, from Alfred the Great through Athelstan to AD1066. The Danish settlements of Northern England are set against the achievements of the Swedish and Norwegian Vikings in Europe, Iceland, Greenland and America.

Topics covered include:
o Arms and armour of the period.
o Where they came from and why.
o Styles of dress, the rich and poor.
o Trading and Viking crafts.
o Life in a long house.
o Ships and navigation.
o Viking games and sports.
o Runes – make a souvenir.
