Are you a teacher? Yes? Then you'll definitely want Imagining History to bring their 'How to be a Viking God' Interactive workshop to your school.


Our Award-Winning sessions combine role-play, storytelling, demonstrations and drama and performance to bring history to life for your students.


Our How to be a Viking God workshop will take your students on a fun and informative journey through the Nine Worlds in this unique introduction to the ancient myths and legends of the Vikings. Your students will:

  • Identify the key Norse Gods by becoming the Gods themselves.

  • Forge weapons with the dwarves to outsmart Loki.

  • Discover the different realms and afterlives and what they can teach us about the values and beliefs of the Vikings.

  • Defeat the Frost Giants with Thor (and find out why he wore a fetching wedding dress).

  • Transform your school hall into a battlefield to help Freyja take the worthy to Valhalla.
