Viking Resources

These resources are aimed at KS2 pupils studying the Vikings, some are stand-alone resources and others are activities.

The Vikings were some of history’s most famous seafarers, using their ships to explore, raid and trade across their known world. These resources investigate the Vikings through the ships they built, how they were able to navigate them safely, what they would trade and the clothes they wore. The Viking era is generally recorded from around the year 800 until around 1100. In Britain it is often recorded as being from 793 to 1066.

The Vikings used their ships to travel far from Scandinavia. This Map shows the world that the Vikings knew (modern country names included to make the map easier to understand, even though these countries did not exist at the time).
