Trip to Jorvik and The Dig

As part of our topic we went on our trip to York to visit the Jorvik Viking Centre and Dig. We had a fantastic day which was jammed packed full of different activities. First we took part in a Sagas workshop where we learned all about skalds. Some of our class got to act out a fun saga involving Thor and his hammer! We then became archaeologists, digging through the centuries to discover artefacts from the past. We also examined bones and other items (including POO) that have been found on digs! We then jumped in time capsules and travelled back in time, 1000 years, to the time of the Vikings.
