The Vikings are here!
They have come to our little town and are staying for the week with lots of fun activities for the children to get. Involved in loving history.

Neither of them could get the mill to turn a full circle.

We were told that a slave girl could have been bought for 3 silver coins, she would then have spent her days spinning this mill. Ending up with an oddly shaped pair of shoulders.

We loved watching the way the vikings make fire using flint and a small piece of cloth.

J was very excited to try out the silverware.
