A Viking Journey to Jersey

The Viking Age, especially in the British Isles, is often associated with a few key places; such as Lindisfarne, London, Dublin, and of course York. However, the Viking world was a wide and varied place, and we plan to take a closer look at more of it with a particular focus on places not commonly associated with the Vikings.

In this episode Lucas speaks to Helen Otterwell, Head of Education at Jersey Heritage. Lucas and Helen discuss the history of the Vikings and the Normans in Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands.
