This Science Week learn all about the Vikings and the role of Science in Archaeology through these newly created videos by the Education and Outreach Department at the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology, and in partnership with the Midlands Science.

There are four videos in total. One video is about the Museum, archaeology and the use of science in archaeology, another is all about the Museum’s collection and the Vikings in Ireland, and a third is about the Vikings expansion and activity in the Midlands in Ireland. The fourth video is a word game, in which you must figure out the missing letters to each of the names of the replica Viking artefacts. So sit back and enjoy this Science Week, and learn about science, archaeology and all things Viking!

These videos feature and were created by Museum Educators from the Education and Outreach Department at the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology and were created in partnership with Midlands Science and the Heritage Offices at Laois, Westmeath, Longford and Offaly. Each of these will be available from the Museum’s website and the Museum’s YouTube channel from 3pm on Friday 12th November.
