As part of their expedition “Sagas, Sailing and Steel” X24 students will be carrying out fieldwork at Sheffield Hallam University on Thursday 26th March.
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.
