Thora, a girl living in Orkney off the coast of Scotland in the year 942, invites the reader to explore her world through crafts, activities, stories, and historical facts. Directions for activities such as making jewelry, an antler comb or a Viking ball make this book great for class projects or at-home pretending. Photographs of Thora and her brother, Erik, and their friend, Deirdre, in costume help bring the past alive and make learning history very interesting. For ages 7-10.
