We’re steadily moving from learning about the Anglo Saxons to the Vikings (although they lived alongside each other) and I will be adding to this blog post as time goes on (and probably linking to it from the top tabs once it’s finished).
However, in the meantime, here is a collection of resources that you may find useful:
- Vikings (BBC History)
- Vikings (BBC Primary History)
- Viking Voyage (Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, US)
- Regia Anglorum – re-enactment society for Anglo Saxons, Vikings and Normans – lots of useful information on their site.
- Hurstwic (Viking re-enactment society, based in US)
- Leif Eriksson (BBC History)
- British History (Britannia History site)
- Saxons and Vikings on BBC R4 A History of the World site – with further links to the Anglo Saxons and Vikings on the BBC.
