Established in 2012, Viking School Visits specialise in bring the Early Medieval (Dark Age) period to life. The time from when the Romans left to the Norman conquest is possibly the most important formative period in our history, and yet most people know little about it.

We work to the highest standards of authenticity and constantly update our knowledge of the latest research into the period. Then we take that knowledge and disseminate it in inventive and child-friendly ways so that historical concepts are clearly understood by your class. We also understand how important it is to encourage enquiry skills with plenty of question time for the children to dig deeper into their own learning.
