Storytelling was an important part of Viking life. The sagas Vikings told, were tales about the gods or great deeds people had done. Skalds (Viking storytellers) memorised these stories or poems and performed them to groups. Some skalds would travel to different lands to tell their stories and bring news. At Hull and East Riding Museum, we invite you to join some visiting Viking skalds and hear their tales from the Norse lands.
Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all time. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment, as some activities can be busy.
