The Vikings

Online Resources

Here’s a list of some websites and organisations who have done excellent work on the topic of the Vikings. Where possible, I have used as many relevant Irish resources as possible! There are some excellent national and international resources available online! If you have found any other great resources please let me know and I will add them for others to use!

The Dublinia Museum is a great place to bring Viking Ireland alive for your students! You can take a walk through the story of Vikings in Ireland, including a visit to a reconstructed roundhouse!​
The National Museum of Ireland Archaeology has a literal treasure trove of Viking artefact and resources. They offer guided tours and workshops throughout the year and also have great resources available online!
The Jorvik Viking Centre has a huge amount of resources about Viking life available for free online. There are lots of videos and activity ideas to explore, as well as lots of 'at home' resources made during for the COVID 19 closures.​
The Heritage in School website will set you up with some really unique resources for studying the Vikings. You can book a visit from a Viking or download some resources to help you plan a walking tour of Dublin!​
The Hunt Museum has made a set of digital resources aimed at helping teachers with the Viking unit of study for 3rd and 4th class. You'll find videos and an accompanying booklet for students! ​
