As an introduction to our topic on the Vikings and Anglo Saxons, we dressed up in all our Viking splendour and invaded York to visit The Dig. We learned about battle tactics, weapons, and armour, and we even had shields and marched into battle. We learned about trades and raids and were told some incredible facts including how Vikings removed headlice. Vikings completed some unsavoury toilet antics in front of their enemies to insult them too. Yuck! Before we went home, we walked up to Clifford’s Tower and re-enacted a Viking battle (not so easy when you’re all great friends, it ended in lots of hugs.) A gruesome but amazing day had by all.
