Article 28: We have the right to a good quality education.

We took part in an online workshop from the Jorvik Centre who told us all about what life was like during the Viking period.  

We learnt about Viking houses and how they lived in one room and that clothing was important to Viking’s to show their wealth. Black clothes were the most expensive clothing as they were unable to make clothing black so this meant that they had to get their clothing from elsewhere. 

We also learnt about Viking raiders and learnt about the things that vikings would have wanted to steal.  Vikings would have stolen coins, gold, silver, relics and other precious stones.
