The Vikings by Clare Hibbert, Alice Harman

Who were the Vikings? Why did the Vikings travel so much? What were Viking towns like? What did the Vikings do for fun? This book helps children at Key Stage 2 discover the answers to these and many other fascinating questions.

The detective shows readers how to write their name using Viking runes, draw family trees for famous Viking kings and find places in Britain that have Viking names. Packed with fascinating information, The History Detective Investigates series inspires children's curiosity to find out more about the past. A great tool for readers age 8+ or teachers looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.
