This fun, interactive and educational lecture was held as part of Heritage Week and demonstrated the might of the Vikings in Europe and their impact on Ireland in particular. Our young audience were more than happy to get in on the act dressing up as Vikings, putting on armour and handling artefacts from swords to crossbows.
