Choose your allegiance for a battle is about to commence! Embark upon an epic quest with local Vikings, Galloway Longfhanda, to see what life was like more than 1000 years ago. Brush up on your bartering skills, see what food you and your family would have eaten – and be ready to defend the honour of your village. Viking warriors are on the rampage and have sent out a challenge for your presence at Ragnarock: The Final Battle at 4pm (they are on a schedule, you know)!
For the less blood-thirsty among you, there is the opportunity to form teams from your school or community group to take part in a day-long trading game woven around Dumfries town centre, the River Nith and Dumfries Museum*. We are also thrilled to see the return of Beyond the Beep between 10am – 3pm. These guys have all the kit to help you find your own treasure trove – and maybe a little bit of history too.
*If you’d like to participate in the game, please contact the museum to register before 14 May.
