Danelaw Viking Village.
Of the many historical sites and organisations I have worked with in the last decade or so, none have impressed me more than the Danelaw project.
Working from Murton Park, near York, Dave Thirlwall and his team have built a very atmospheric “Viking Village” for
education use. Dave himself is the first to admit that the construction methods aren’t as accurate as they could be but the prime requisite was that the village should be safe and usable as a giant classroom.
The education program developed on the site has expanded now to include a Roman Fort, Celtic Roundhouses and recently a Tudor Farmhouse.
With a wide ranging outreach service for schools of which I am now proud to be associated, the staff now work with over 60,000 school children each year and are booking two years in advance.
Arson attack and the new Longhouse built in just five weeks !
