Hartington Viking Forest School experience

Hartington children went on an exciting trip to Thornsett Fields Farm where they lived, ate and fought like Vikings for the day. We learnt a lot about Anglo-saxons and Vikings lifestyles, made our own Viking coins, built long boats and houses from whatever we could find and tried Mead and Bread warmed on the fire. 


Finally, it was battle time! We split into Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, made our own weapons from sticks and ropes and...may battle commence. The end of the battle saw a draw and after a vote the Vikings and Anglo-saxons decided to live in harmony. 


A fun day had by all.
