I Spy! Vikings of the Museum
March 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmIncluded in museum admission
What did it mean to be a Viking? The Vikings were invaders and settlers who came from Scandinavia and travelled by boat as far as North America in the west and Central Asia in the east from about 700 to 1100 AD. The word “Viking” meant “pirate raid” in the Old Norse language spoken in Scandinavia around the same period. In fact, they arrived in the Americas long before Columbus, reaching Newfoundland sometime around 1000 AD. Many Vikings wore metal helmets and chainmail. Come explore the days of the Vikings in this month’s I Spy! and see some swords, shields, helmets, and chainmail up close!
