Welcome to VES

Valley Elementary School Vikings

The Viking people came from the three countries of Scandinavia: Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. They were also known as the Norse people. They were mostly farmers, but some worked as craftsmen or traders.

Many Vikings were great travelers and sailed all over Europe and the North Atlantic Ocean in their longships. Some went as fierce pirate raiders: they stole treasure and attacked local people but most Vikings who sailed overseas were simply searching for better land for their farms.

The Viking Age began about 1,200 years ago in the 8th Century AD and lasted for 300 years.
