This event is not open to the general public.
Raiders & Traders: Our Viking workshop centres on the Vikings’ explorations around the world, the countries they travelled to and invaded and what life was like for them. The costumed character is a Viking mariner who brings along a model of a Viking ship, (82cms long) to demonstrate. The children will have the opportunity to get up close with the ship, try on helmets and some chainmail as well as handle artefacts and will have great fun re-creating a shield wall and doing drill. We will also recreate one of the favourite games of the Vikings ‘kingy bats’.
We round up the session with a Viking Saga, which can be done at the end of each session or with all classes joined together at the end.
