Vikings, The North Atlantic Saga

Vikings, The North Atlantic Saga

Students love the exciting sagas of the Vikings. This beautifully done web site is the companion to the Viking Exhibit and television documentary. Students can sail their Viking longship along the routes to the settlements in Greenland, Markland, Helluland, and Vinland. Once there, a click starts a narrative about the archeology, sagas, history, and environment. What cultures would they have met at that time? Teachers will enjoy the Learning Center that offers guides to the study of the Vikings.
