Autumn break on Viking life

By on October 25, 2017

During the Viking era, the season was celebrated by making a sacrifice party, a so-called blot. Autumn blot takes goodbye of the bright six months and welcomes the darkness. In Viking life, we are glad that we left the blot behind us, but insisted that the fall’s entry is worth celebrating with extraordinary autumn break activities, children and theme shows.

Between October 28th and November 5th, we have daily children’s shows in addition to our introductory displays. The children will listen to how life could be during the Viking era, sample tasting the Viking’s eatables for the journey and look and feel on objects.

Since it’s autumn holidays, All Saints and Halloween times, we also think it’s great with a deepening of the viking era’s darkest subjects. Every afternoon we have a special show on the subject of death, curse and mythology.
If you are crazy for something easier, try spinning yarns or challenge one of our hosts on Hnefatafl, a Viking-based board game (which is not on life and dead).

Viking life opened the doors for the first time in April this year. Here visitors can learn about life during the Viking era; how they lived, what they ate, how they traveled and lived, both during travel and at home on the farm.

– Since we opened in April, we have listened a lot to the wishes of our visitors and after that our educators have produced a variety of views. Now until the autumn break is the focus on children’s shows and the exciting special presentation with the theme of death, curse and mythology, says Elin Karlsson, CEO of Vikingaliv.
