You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy history.

This morning, we had a great time at The History Group with a double treat! 🎉 John and Ingrid took us on a thrilling Viking Cruise from Ginnungagap to Ragnarok—spanning from before Creation to the End of the World! 🚢🔮 There was no need to book your ticket; you just turned up and joined the adventure!��But wait, there's more! In the second half, Andrew enlightened us about the Viking legacy on place names. 🏞️ Plus, we got our thinking caps on for a quiz with prizes! 🎁 Andrew even did some research on the villages in our local area— who would have thought Birdwell meant fertility? Talk about a true Viking exploration! ⚔️��Didn't miss out 🌟 if you’re not a U3A member, then this is just one more reason to join.   bu3a.org.uk
