Viking Adventures

Viking Adventures

Service Pack: Available with USO


Exploring the life and legacy of the Vikings with artefacts and insights from the British Museum.

'Viking Adventures at the British Museum' started life as an educational film screened in cinemas around the UK with professional recreations of Viking life, raids and death. This resource not only includes original footage from the film, but also new, exclusive LGfL filming of curators handling Viking artefacts in the British Museum vaults, plus high-resolution images, new explanatory texts and a series of cross-curricular lesson plans for KS2 teachers.

It is a response to the KS2 History requirement in the revised National Curriculum (2014) for pupils to study "Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor". It focuses on History, but also has lesson links to English, Geography, DT and Computing). All cross-curricular links (English, Geography, DT and Computing) are also NC-referenced on the relevant lesson plans.
