Research what Viking helmets were like. Were they as you had imagined or as they have been depicted in fictional books, films or the television? The pdf below is an example of how to make a Viking helmet. You could either use these ideas or come up with your own designs. Can you select and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks such as: cutting, shaping, joining and finishing?
