The Vikings

Food is scarce in the Norse lands, and you and your sister, Freja, have heard tell of other Vikings travelling to England to start a new life. Led by the village headman Grim, however, some of your fellow villagers are more intent on pillaging and stealing than settling alongside your new Anglo-Saxon neighbours. When Freja is captured by King Alfred, you’re pulled into the fray. Can peace prevail?

In this Experience, your class will:

  • Keep an amulet of Thor’s hammer to bring you luck
  • Sail to England on Grim’s Viking Longship, ‘The Dragon Fire’
  • Desert Grim’s men as they pillage a monastery
  • Encounter Anglo-Saxon children
  • Make peace between The Vikings and King Alfred

This Experience includes a Teacher Resource Pack linking The Vikings Experience to:

  • Literacy activities
  • Storyboard
  • Factual Quiz
