Life in the Time of the Vikings | The Story of Britain | BBC Teach

Life in Viking Britain is shown through the eyes of a family, with an exploration of the reasons for Vikings coming to Britain.

Our class reader:


Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.

Obviously no one believes him.

So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
