- Mr. Wrigley, Wilmington Girls Grammar School

"Dear Peter the Merciless, I enjoyed the morning. Thank you for inviting us to try some archery. I learnt to do rubbings. Mine was of Odin. I learnt to write my name in Viking!! I enjoyed the WHOLE MORNING!!! The Viking beer smelt disgusting!
P.S. Thank you for letting me press my own coin.
P.P.S. You look like a very scary Viking."

"Dear Peter the Merciless, thank you for teaching us and telling us about the Vikings. My fave thing was making the Viking silver. It was very interesting. I thought the archery was fun! The spices were very smelly!!! The only spice I liked was the lavender it smelled lovely! And the hammer and chain mail was very very heavy!"
- Radka, Class 5, Priory Fields School

"Very good. They learnt a lot...It's like bringing a museum to the school."
