School children had a taste of life as a Viking warrior when an expert visited them.

The Year 4 pupils at Daiglen School in Palmerston Road, Buckhurst Hill, were visited by a historian from the Longship Trading Company bearing authentic weapons.

Teacher Rachel Thomas said: “They got to handle some of the weapons, which they absolutely loved.

“The expert was talking to them about different types of courts and trials the Vikings had, so different children were accused of various misdemeanours.

“They are studying the Vikings and we found it quite difficult to find an interactive Viking exhibition because a lot of the Viking places are in the north, so this was good.”

A great experience for the kids and to teach them the history of vandalism, is educational.

Presumably that would be an entirely different session given that the Vandals were an entirely different group

Cornbeefur, do you really hold a law degree?? Given the importance of grammar, commas, full stops and capital letters in drafting legal documents I am surprised they would have even let you on a course. Then again it could be from the University of Disney. I hear the give out Mickey Mouse degrees from there.
