Viking Day with re-enactor

This session looks at Chertsey Abbey which was founded by a Saxon in 666AD, and was attacked by the Vikings in 871AD. We are very lucky to have in the museum a real Viking sword that was found near to the site of Chertsey Abbey in Thorpe. It includes

  • Dressing up in Viking tunics (supplied by the museum)
  • Tour of the site of Chertsey Abbey
  • Chance to look at the real Viking sword
  • Make a Viking Sword
  • Viking trail around the museum
  • Meet a real Viking (re-enactor) who will discuss his life and his weapons with the help of brave  volunteers!
