  1. 1. VIKINGS<br />
  2. 2. WHY DO VIKING’S WEAR HELMETS<br />There are many reasons that Viking&apos;s wear helmets. One of the reason are so when they are struck by a sharp object they would only feel the impact of the strike but they would receive a cut. If you look at the Viking’s helmets they have a piece of metal that comes over the nose. This is so if they are stuck across the face there eyes don’t water and they can still fight. You think, would you rather be hit in the nose or the jaw and even then some of the helmets came down across the jaw. <br />
  3. 3. WHAT VIKING’S WEAR TO BATTLE<br />Viking’s wear a tunic to battle to keep them self warm. Over there tunics they wear a metal tunic. This works like the helmet. You would feel the force of the strike but you would receive no cut. They wore shoes only made of material. They had no sole. Capes were a big thing they were used to keep there neck warm, they also made them think they were superior. It also acted as an insulator. <br />
  4. 4. WHAT VIKING’S WEAR CASUALLY<br />Vikings wear thick pants. They also wear a thick tunic , under the tunic they wear a singlet that keeps there chest warm so they don’t get a cold. They wear a cape to to keep them warm and it acts as an insulator. In the winter they also wear beanie. This keep the head warm and stops them from getting a head cold. It also keep there ears warm. <br />

  6. 6. Women Vikings and young girls were found to wear 2 – 3 different layers. There were no fine or delicate clothing. And young girls wore smaller versions of what their mother or other older women wore. Married women wore headdress or scarves over their heads.<br />LAYER 1: (optional) Leggings- If made from leather, it was wrapped around the legs and could be criss-crossed to make patterns or were made from cloth and could be tight could be baggy - could be long could be short, they varied a lot.<br />LAYER 2: A CHEMISE: was a linen long-sleeve dress which reached the ankles (younger girls may have worn shorter dresses but not a lot shorter)<br />LAYER 3: the last layer, which was worn over the chemise, was a woollen pinafore type garment that reached to just below the knees. It had strips going over the shoulders that were held together by brooches. <br />
  7. 7. Back then even peoples clothes were used to show their place in society!The richer women would decorate their clothes in brooches and jewels. They would also wear silk, if they had big enough farm and could trade things in to get their silk imported from Asia. The lower classes would wear linen and wool. But wool was most common because sheep were easy to grow. Slaves would wear hand-me-downs usually from their masters or people in town because linen was too expensive to spend n them! <br />
  8. 8.  › <br />DYES<br />Vikings liked having their clothes coloured. They used natural dyes, but it was a matter of weather they had the right plants available or not. The wealthier people could afford brighter colours and more colourful dyes there fore poorer people had the darker ones. <br />-BLACK was made by mixing red, blue and yellow.<br />-WHITE was made by bleaching the yarn. <br />
  9. 9. SHOES<br />The shoes were made of leather and sometimes still had the fur inside them to keep their feet warm. Steps to making the shoes:<br />Step1: THE BODY of the shoe was made which was usually sheep skin or calf skin.<br />Step2: SOLE which was just leather made from Cattle hide. <br />Step3: HOLES were punched around both of the shoes (sole and body)<br />Step4: STITCHING the shoe inside out using linen thread.<br />Women and men, as well as children, all had the same style of shoes.<br />
