As part of our Viking research, I wanted the class to realise that this was a nation of great travellers and traders, and that it wasn’t all about raiding.

I mention a bronze brooch from the video we’ve just watched – where do they think it came from?

Found it!
Nicked it!
Ok, anywhere else? (silence) What if I came round to your house and noticed a book. What are all the different ways that book ended up in your house?
Borrowed it!
Written it yourself!
Maybe found it?
Fantastic. Anything else? (long silence)
Maybe somebody bought it?
That’s a great answer
(quietly: Yeah, cos nobody’s going to nick a book!)
