Year 5 visited the ancient Viking city of Jorvik today. We discovered the weapons used and battles fought; what their homelife was like; and also how they told their stories.
Some of the questions we wanted to discover were:
Who served longest on the Viking throne?
Are you natives of Iceland?
How did you start fires?
Did the Vikings stain their clothes with colours?
What was the reaction to the opening of the Jorvik Viking Centre?
Did you like your life as a Viking?
What was the most popular weapon?
Did Vikings have rules/religions that made them not be able to eat/drink something?
