The Variable Vikings

This month at YAC, members were given a chance to see what Viking life was like. Donna – a Viking re-enactor – brought along a range of objects to give a real hands-on element to this month’s session.

Members had a go at daily tasks such as spinning – vital for every good Viking to learn as warm clothes would have been essential!

But no Viking would be complete without his or her fighting kit – chainmail, sword, shield and helmet. Members had great fun trying all of these on.

The chainmail seemed heavy to wear but was even heavier when you picked it up!!
