Across the country, school history classes are set to go back in time 1,300 years, by using 21st century technology. Pupils from around the country will be linked to Vikings via video-conferencing technology.
This pilot scheme launched by the Jorvik Viking Centre in York aims to bring classroom history lessons to life, and allows students to interact with Vikings from the centre, along with hearing their stories about life as a Viking. Each 45-minute session will allow students to engage with costumed characters and will also allow students to see precious artifacts not usually available to the public.
As well as Vikings, classes will be able to interact with Tudors, Romans and even the archeologists about history from that period.
