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. 

The stations will cover:

- Hunkerhauser (Tug of War)
- Trading simulation
- Archery
- 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.
