  • SLIDE 8 – Viking Menu was a good exercise here, also I fed the class Herring the following lesson, following on from this one and proved quite successful! I have attached at the end of this presentation another slide I feel will be of use, I mentioned it in class I think – Viking postcard exercise, prompted good recall and imaginative writing, grand. – actually I couldn’t paste it over so have attached the whole powerpoint to the email. 
  • How do you think we know what Vikings ate? What do YOU think the Vikings ate???
  • Women gutted the fish, some may have been cooked right then, others were covered in salt and stored in dry barrels, some were pickled in salt water or strong brine, some were threaded onto thin sticks and hung up in a house to smoke SMOKING MEAT ALLOWS IT TO LAST LONGER!!!

    5. 5. If barley and oats were all Vikings could grow…where did they get the rest of their food???Fishing in the fjords and keeping cattle and goats which grazed on the side of themountains enabled the Vikings to supplement their diet of barley and oats.Keeping cattle and goats also ensured that the Vikings could eat butter, cheese andbuttermilk – these were full of vitamins and ensured the Vikings stayed healthy.Poor farming conditions were one of the main reasons many Vikings lefthome.They used their skills as seamen and warriors to find land elsewhere.
