Insight and immersion – activities for children



Land of legends Lejre offers educational paths for school pupils to the Iron Age villageViking marketplace, Farm cottages, Harpestreng's garden, Fire valley and with our Ranger.



The paths can last from 1½ hours to up to 5 days in the case of a school camp at the Viking market place.



Pupils are actively involved in the activity. They work with copies of tools and implements from the past so they can get a feel of how daily life could have been. They are involved in role-play so they can gain an impression of the ideologies and social relationships of the past. The instructors talk to pupils throughout, dealing with questions as they arise.



The activities are aimed at giving immersion and involvement in life in the past. Discussions with the instructors give occasion to reflect on terms such as duration, difficulty and quality. We will communicate quality of craftsmanship to our pupils who perhaps have an idea of the past as having been very primitive.



Respect for quality and respect for the unfamiliar, which our past also represents, are important aspects of Land of legends’ teaching and of the values it hopes to impart. This is an important part of our working philosophy.
