Who were the Vikings?

A simple introduction to where the Vikings came from, why they came to Britain and what we know about them. I suggest at the end of the PPT that you go on to look at the super photos that the British Museum have of Viking artefacts (web address given). Use them to stimulate discussion on what skills More… the Vikings had, the materials they used, whether they were really as bloodthirsty as we think etc!
