Want to learn more about the Vikings? Then visit Castlerock Museum in Alma on Saturday, March 24, from 12-4 p.m. for the museum’s annual Meet the Vikings event, an afternoon celebration of all things Viking.
Reenactors will be on hand to answer questions about Viking history, culture, technology, clothing, and weapons. Demonstrations will show how to use a bow lathe, how drop spindles and how wool combs were used, and how silver inlays were made in iron. Visitors can also see several actual Viking artifacts on display including a spangenhelm, chieftain’s sword, and Danish axe.
Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Children ages four and under are free. Members receive a 50-percent discount. Contact the museum at 608-685-4231 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
