This Virtual School Visit will include a short talk in which your class will discover what life was like in Britain as the Viking ships landed and these raiders began to take lands for themselves.
Explore key features of Viking life, including their famous raids, trading, the legendary longships and their often overlooked love of games and sports. Throughout the talk they will have the opportunity to see a wide range of real and replica Viking artefacts and discover how these objects can provide rich details of life in Viking communities.
Then it is their turn to take charge...
Students will have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic discussion on the Vikings led by the visiting archaeologist. Classes can pose their Viking questions and discuss the answers, tailoring their discoveries to their individual interests.
