Vikings Exhibition

boyvikingWe ventured into NYC to visit the Vikings Exhibition and Discovery-Times Square. We watched a short film and looked at artifacts in the largest display of Vikings items in North America. First, though, we took a picture on a Viking ship as we approached new lands! We saw actual clothing and jewelry worn by the Vikings and learned how the women played an important role in their communities. Matt, our ancient history and classics teacher, gave us the rune alphabet, and we looked at stones with rune messages on them. Sadly, we couldn’t translate them all. Students enjoyed the interactive exhibit where they could touch swords, wear Viking headgear, and listen to Viking tales.
