We feel fortunate and happy to announce that Olaf will be returning again this year.. He brings with him Viking fighting skills, weapons, knowledge of both, his encampment, Viking clothing, and of course his great humor and good will.. Olaf is a member of Slavic Invasion .. was hoping to see the 2 shield maidens battle again but we have no problem raising a horn to say “Hail Olaf – Velkom”
The foundation prepares and presents a multitude of opportunities to learn about Vikings and their culture. Learning can be as simple as a show and tell exhibit or when and where possible participating in an activity.
Show and tell can run from seeing and/or reading to watching a live demonstration of a Viking activity/practice/skill.
