The Jorvik Viking
Journey back in time to the tenth century and spend 45 minutes in the company of a Viking at home in the city of Jorvik. Hear him talk about his daily life, his overseas adventures, his beliefs and much more besides. He will also share with you intricate and fascinating artefacts from the Viking age, all of which will give your learners an engaging and exciting insight into the realities of life in a Viking-era city. They can also think of their own questions to ask him.
