Product Description
The reputation of the Vikings, everyone's "favorite medieval barbarians", has undergone something of a makeover in recent decades, as historians have started seeing some of their more positive contributions to medieval trade, exploration, and art.

This lesson strives to give an appropriately balanced account of the Vikings, looking at the aforementioned topics as well as their more unsavory actions. Topics discussed include the construction of Viking ships, their art and mythology, and their explorations/conquests in North America, France, Southern Italy and Sicily, and Russia.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
