Vikings - A trip to Jorvik, York

On Monday, 19th February, Eagles visited DIG, a hands-on, interactive archaeology museum, where they were given a guided tour by an Archaeologist and look at what an Archaeologist does, what kind of things they find and how these discoveries help us build a picture of life in the past. They also had the chance to dig through simulated DIG pits and an artefact handling session with real Viking age artefacts. Following this, they took part in a Viking Battle Tactics workshop.


Later, at the JORVIK Viking Centre, Eagles enjoyed several educational talks from Viking guides, as well as travelling through a reconstruction of Jorvik, complete with the sights, sounds and smells of city life.
