    • Who were the Vikings?
    • The Vikings were people who lived long ago in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
    • Most Vikings lived on farms in houses made of wood, stone or blocks of turf.
    • Vikings men were craftsmen or traders. Viking women did all the household jobs.
    • Viking children did not go to school. They helped at home and learnt from stories.
    • Vikings wore clothes made of cloth, leather and fur. All Viking people wore jewellery.
    • The Vikings ate a lot of meat. They ate off wooden plates and drank from horns.
    • The Vikings were great sailors who travelled all over Europe in long ships.
    • The Vikings came to England in search of treasure and wealth in 865.
    • They destroyed monasteries and killed many monks to get to their gold.
    • The Vikings were great warriors. They used spears and shields in battle.
    • They captured most of the north of England. The only part not won was Wessex.
    • They had their own alphabet called ‘runes’. These symbols were carved onto stone.
    • The Vikings had their own religion and worshipped their own gods.
    • The most popular God was Thor. Thor ruled the skies, storms and thunder.
    • The Vikings bought and sold things using coins, which were measured by weight.
    • William the Conqueror won England in 1066, ending the Viking era in England.
