We are sending out the call for all Ragnars and Lagerthas to help us defend our antiquities. Costumes and tattoos are optional but you will definitely need a Viking mindset to participate and win at Shield Wall Training!
Our September School Holiday Program is focusing on the Viking people and culture.
Our craft activities are a fun way to learn about ancient cultures. Some activities run throughout the day while others are scheduled to help make your day easier to plan. The hardest part of your visit will be trying to get your kids to leave!

Running from Mon 19th to Fri 30th Sept 2016 (excluding weekends), we will have loads of fun activities such as:
•Make a Viking Helmet and Longboat
•Make and dress a Viking Paper Doll
•Rune Translation and Puzzle pages
•Make a Viking Bracelet ($2 extra)
•Paint a Viking Shield ($4 extra)
•Become an Archaeologist and dig up Viking Treasures
•Try your hand at Whipcord Braiding
•Learn to be a Warrior or Shield Maiden in our Shield Wall Training session
•And of course Archery will be on the program ($2 per session)
•Take up the challenge of our Viking Questionnaire for the opportunity to win a Family pass to our next School Holiday Program in January – Archaeology Family Fun.
