The Vikings are Coming!
The Vikings came from all around Scandinavia (where Norway, Sweden and Denmark are today). They sent armies to Britain about the year 700 AD to take over some of the land, and they lived here until around 1050. Even though the Vikings didn’t stay in Britain, they left a strong mark on society. We have even kept some of the same names of towns.
Y4 have created wonderful models of the longboats that the Vikings used
when they sailed across the North Sea to invade Britain.
