Two thousand years ago, the warlike Celts dominated northern and central Europe. Hundreds of years later, a group of fearsome fighters known as the Vikings raided parts of Europe from the North. 30 step-by-step projects help to bring these two warrior cultures alive in this fun and fact packed book. Complete with cross-sections, historical maps and pictorial timeline there is plenty to provide extra insight into these societies and highlight links with the present.
