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?
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?
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!)
