Bjorn the Viking visited Class 4 to tell and show us all about life as a trader and raider in the Viking culture.  Bjorn gave us Viking names and jobs, and we created our Anglo-Saxon names from Viking runes. We explored the life of a Viking as a woman, the head of the house, a slave and their jobs, and as a Viking warrior, raiding and reaving across distant shores. We practiced the noble art of Viking stick wrestling, proving our strength and our toughness. To complete our experience, Bjorn formed us into 2 shield walls, teaching us how to battle like a Viking, and the orders we followed were those used in Viking battle.
