After learning about what preconception of Vikings people have I was amazed to learn what vikings were actually about. Comparing the preconceptions to the exhibit, I’d say they have little in common. The exhibit showed us how Vikings lived in communities; they farmed and prospered just like small communities do today. The preconceptions of vikings don’t have much in common with the exhibit itself, but I’d say have some things in common with the game Viking we played during camp. In this game we took turns buying parts of islands and ships to create our own Viking world. It wasn’t very in depth but in some parts you had to rely on certain game pieces to help others out which I believe connects to the exhibit (about Viking communities) rather than the preconceptions of Vikings we talked about during camp.
