Invasions | Settlements and kingdoms

Why did the Vikings come to Britain? Understand the derivation of Nordic names. Two time-travelling children discuss clothes worn at the time. Decipher runes and map-out where in Britain they lived. Create a brooch to take home and take part a Viking funeral.

Handle and draw artefacts including bones, jewellery, coins, pottery, bone utensils, metal and armour. What can we learn about the people from the objects?
