Synopsis

Raiders of the North Discover the Dramatic World of the Celts and Vikings by Fiona MacDonald, Philip Steele

This title helps you discover the dramatic world of the Celts and Vikings. You can find out about every aspect of the lives of the Vikings and the Celts, their military campaigns, society and craftwork. 30 step-by-step projects involve the reader in bringing the past to life - make a drinking horn, build a longship fit for a Viking warrior, and design a Celtic brooch. Fact boxes highlight links with the present. It is packed with over 700 photographs and illustrations, including artworks, historical maps and pictorial timelines. It is perfect for home or school use for 8- to 12-year olds. Step back to a time more than 2000 years ago when the warlike Celts and seafaring Vikings dominated northern and central Europe. Discover their way of life - the ships they sailed in, the distant lands they went to, and the wars they waged. Yet this is only part of the story. The Celts were a farming people whose skill as metal workers was unsurpassed. The Vikings were skilled sailors who journeyed as far as North America. Marvel at their amazing stone carvings and intricate ornaments, and learn about their gods such as Epona and Freya, Thor and Odin. 30 step-by-step projects help to bring these two warrior cultures alive in this fun and fact-packed book.
