As part of their expedition “Sagas, Sailing and Steel” X24 students will be carrying out fieldwork at Sheffield Hallam University on Tuesday 25th February.
Students will be testing the strength of different materials to help them gain a deeper understanding of how Viking swords were strengthened with materials from ancestral bones.
We will be leaving school by coach at 9.00am. We expect to return at around 3.00pm.
Students will need to bring their regular stationary: pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, pencil sharpener.
They will also need to bring a pack-up lunch.
We do not expect to be outdoors for any great length of time so no specialist clothing is required.
Sheffield Hallam University have asked to take photographic and video footage of the day, but would not use student names. We will honour existing non-media consent forms. If you require any further details, or if you do not consent to Sheffield Hallam using media images/video containing your son or daughter, then please email Mr Said:
