Viking Battle Tactics
Discover what weapons the Vikings used and why. Watch Viking combat and have the chance to get involved.
Our new Viking Saga workshop is designed to promote interest in Viking myths, sagas and poetry. A costumed Viking will help you understand the important role of the storyteller and skald in Viking society. Listen to stories and poetry heard by Vikings over a thousand years ago, help re-enact a myth about Thor and his hammer and have fun with Viking riddles or kennings'.
