Our day was split into four activities:
- A Viking quest - we learnt all about the history of Vikings in the Lea Valley. We collected clues and used Viking runes to solve a puzzle.
- Jewellery - we created a Viking brooch just like the Vikings used to decorate their clothes.
- Home life - we found out day to day life at home from the Thane's wife. We learnt: what Vikings ate; what they wore; and how they passed the time.
- Weapons and Longships - how did Vikings travel? What weapons did they use? We investigated these questions with the help of a brave warrior!
