Set Sail with the Vikings

We took a trip to Scandinavia with the American Swedish Museum, who visited the Evesham Library to teach us about the life and culture of Vikings(click on the link to learn more)

Welcome to the Viking Age (from the early 800’s to 1066).  We saw artifacts, dressed up like Viking warriors, and even learned that Vikings probably discovered America hundreds of years before Christopher Columbus!  In addition to fierce warriors – Vikings were poets, artists, traders, and farmers.  Take a look …
