Vikings In Ireland

20th May 2019

This term in the Middle Room, we have been learning about the Vikings.

The Vikings lived in wooden longhouses, often built with wood cut in places far from home and shipped back to Scandinavia. Materials, animals and slaves were taken from Celtic Ireland to new settlements in Iceland and Greenland too.

We made models of Viking longhouses to picture this and their way of life better. We learned a lot about design and building as well!
