Home / School Workshops

school icon   In-school Workshop - we visit your school: All UK Regions


We provide interactive hands on learning, with lots of various activities. Each visit is hosted by a Warrior in full dress of the period, and with our multitude of artefacts, replica weaponry, clothing etc brought with us, we delve into all aspects of Viking and Anglo Saxon life including home life, religion, work, battle, trade, food, language and geography.

Some of our activities…
• Grind grain to make flour
• Try on authentic copies of helmets, clothes and jewellery
• Take the chainmail lifting challenge
• Pick out the real foods of the time from our food display
• Learn to write in runes
• Play dice games, stick wrestling and hnefatafl
• Choose a name and occupation of the time
• Form up into a shield wall with spears and shields and follow battle commands
• Take part in our end of day quiz to see how many fun facts have been learnt during the day
