With the release of the new 2014 curriculum there is an increased demand for Viking and Anglo-Saxon History to be taught in primary schools. Roman Tours has worked with schools and museums for 10 years, and in response to this demand, is now proud to present Viking School Days.
The spiraling cost and associated issues for teachers planning education trips has, for some schools, made it impossible to visit historical sites and museums. To combat this growing problem we provide school visits across the UK, with sessions tailored to meet individual requirements.
We provide a unique educational experience which is entertaining and informative and brings the exciting world of the Vikings to life.
Dressed as a 10th Century Viking warrior we focus on the life story of one Norseman from birth to death.
Through curriculum-relevant role play, questioning and activities we encourage pupils to ask perceptive questions:
Our costume and equipment are exact copies of real artefacts found through archaeological investigation.
We can specifically tailor sessions for all schools and also cater for disabilities and special needs.
We provide full day presentations to: Primary Schools, High Schools up to AS Level and Further Education Establishments. For further information see the PDF documents below:

"Not only was Olaf very informative and educational, he was also hilarious, and had the children roaring with laughter throughout the day. We would definitely recommend him to enrich your child's understanding of the Vikings."
