Make This Viking Settlement by Iain Ashman


Make This Viking Settlement by Iain Ashman

Printed on stiff card, this book contains templates to cut out and construct a model of a Viking settlement crammed with authentic detail. The base of the completed model measures 61 x 46cm, and includes 16 houses with doors and windows that open to reveal the details inside, and two Viking trading ships. It contains over 40 cut-out figures including merchants, traders and townspeople to recreate scenes of everyday life in a bustling riverside settlement.


'Extremely well designed and satisfying to make - Good Book Guide; 'Rome wasn't built in a day, but a replica model will be! Arm yourself with scissors and glue to recreate Viking settlements, Roman villas and medieval villages packed with accurate historical detail - why not start with a 14th century castle or a Greek temple?' - The School Run'
