This resource is part of my ocean row around Great Britain as I follow the Viking routes and explore Britain's geography and history, and the STEM features that built a nation. You might like to book a free virtual field trip with me on my Skype Classroom (https://education.microsoft.com/Story/VirtualFieldTrip?token=9BG4S), to follow my videos on YouTube or on Amazon (Sarah Rows Solo), or to watch the live streams (or send me a question for #Vikinghour) @GBVQuest on Twitter.
