We provide interactive day long workshops, teaching the history of the Viking age in the most memorable way. The majority of our day is focused on being hands on, looking at weaponry etc and Q&A sessions, rather than just wordy educational chats, that may not be absorbed. We finish up with a battle and a quiz. Children will never have a chance to be bored during the day!

Please summarize why you are great to support learning.  
We always really enjoy seeing the enthusiasm and excitement from the children and the results of our end of day quiz really show the way this assists learning. Nearly always full marks!

We have a real passion for Viking History, which we hope shows.
