Talk to Drigg Local History Group by Terry Harvey-Chadwick

We were treated to a wide-ranging and very interesting talk on the Vikings or rather the 8th to 14th C Scandinavian adventurers in general and then in particular how they affected Britain.

Terry can apparently tailor his talks about the Vikings according to interests and can focus on their journeys, their religion, their fighting, invading and seamanship abilities and how they lived domestically and as farmers.

The talk he gave us was an overall view as has been developed in more recent historical studies and our group thought the way that the whole subject was covered with his excellent demonstrations of reproduction items from their everyday lives and how they were probably used was memorable as was his illustration of the use of various weapons to fragment a turnip! 

Excellent educational entertainment which should suit most age groups.
