Viking Invasion


Saturday the 28th of May 11 till 4
Sunday the 29th of May 11 till 4

Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel

Come along and experience what life would have been like for Norse men and women who landed on Scottish shores around the end of the ninth century. How did they get here, what did they eat and what role did the sea play in their daily life?

Watch fearless Viking warriors in thrilling clashes. Wander through the camp to find out how they lived, what they ate, how they made their weapons and clothes. Have a go at striking a Viking coin, making some flour and try on a helmet or two.

Listen to a Viking scald tell a saga and find out why they did not wear horned helmets!
