Both 5th classes hugely enjoyed learning more about Viking and Medieval Dublin on a recent trip to Dublinia.
We tried on some helmets and had a lot of fun looking at the exhibition! There was a trip on a Viking longboat, a visit to the docks to try buy some slaves and tested out their homes. After learning about their toilets we really appreciate our modern comforts! While exploring Norman Ireland we saw Dublin city being built, took a trip to a medieval fair and encountered the (rather disgusting) bubonic plague and its victims. We even saw a real skeleton uncovered by archaeologists.
A very exciting day out!
