The Vikings were great travellers and seamen, travelling from their Scandinavian homeland as far afield as America (known to the Vikings as Vinland) in the west and Constantinople and Baghdad in the east.

All this was done using the Viking ship. Although the Vikings are best known to many of us as raiders, they were also traders, explorers and settlers, leaving their mark wherever they went.

You can find out more about where the Vikings went using the maps where you can among other things find "Viking Network Information Sheets", which have been produced by our member schools.
