Viking Longship by Mick Manning

Be a fly on the wall in the time of the Vikings. Watch skilful ship builders at work, charge into battle, visit a Viking farmstead, enjoy the hustle and bustle of Jorvik on market day and listen to fireside tales about the Viking gods - you can even wipe a tear from your eye at a Viking funeral! These pages are packed full of up-to-date information about Viking life from the latest archaeological discoveries. With drawings, notes, wood shavings, straw, wolf fur and axe marks, this book shows you history as it really happened!

A superb book which will be ideal for KS2 pupils studying the Vikings, for anyone interested in history - and to get everyone interested in history!
