Explore the Viking attack on the residents of Lindisfarne in the North of England, with some cross-curricular activities and an evocative interactive resource
The first Viking raid on British shores was in AD793, on the Island of Lindisfarne (also known as Holy Island) in Northumbria. It may have been a small raid in itself, but it marked the arrival of the Norsemen and set in motion a chain of events that would influence the history of Britain for the next 300 years.
Transport your class back in time to the Viking raid on Lindisfarne in AD793 with our evocative interactive resource Matilda, a resident of Lindisfarne, tells the story of the raid while a fantastically detailed illustration scrolls across the screen, and the sound of longships on the sea and Vikings attacking can be heard in the background!
