What does it take to become a fearless Viking warrior?

Join children’s author and Viking expert Janina Ramirez for a special free event with JORVIK Viking Centre to celebrate her new children's book Riddle of the Runes. Janina will introduce fearless shield maidens, reveal fascinating facts about the Vikings, and will need your help to solve a mysterious crime.

After the event Janina will be signing copies of her book and you will have the chance to test your Viking mettle with a sword and shield drill activity in the Quad.

All welcome but most suitable for age 7+
