Professor Costanza Dopfel
Bjornstad has been invited to provide a class on the
Vikings as part of a course on Barbarian cultures presented by Professor
Costanza Dopfel at St. Mary's College.
The class runs from 10:30
Noon until 3:30 PM. We'll deliver our PowerPoint
presentation, insert the Viking Art of War into it, and lay out our weaponry and
artifact exhibit. We'll have a group of 25 - 30 students. Weather permitting, we'll move outside for the combat portion
of our presentation. The second half of our presentation will be devoted to
hands-on student involvement as they move from one station to another.
stations will cover:
- Hunkerhauser (Tug of War)
- Trading simulation
- Sword and shield
- Coin stamping
Professor Dopfel has asked us to focus on the
day-to-day life of those in the Viking Age, recognizing that her class is
primarily made up of college freshmen.
We'll meet at 9:00 AM at the rear
of De La Salle Hall, where the seminar will be held, to unload our gear and get
set up. We'll set up our Viking A-frame tent in the classroom itself.
