Discovery Days: Vikings

Discovery Days: Vikings

Discover the Viking Age!

Meet experts, handle artefacts and find out about the lives and impact of the Vikings. During a series of interactive sessions, University experts will answer children's questions and encourage them to think more creatively.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

 In partnership with the CSVA.
