Set sail on this ship across Europe as you learn all about the Vikings. Will you fight your way through Sweden or establish a relationship with the Native Americans? This illustrative puzzle is covered with facts about ' The Viking Age'. You will learn about historic moments between the 8th and 11th centuries. During this period, the Vikings terrorised and raided both Europe and Russia.
Across the top and bottom of the puzzle tray, you will find 11 people who made an impact during this time. Puzzle pieces that run along the top and bottom feature information about famous Vikings and historical events. This encourages the puzzler to remember facts about each historical figure.
The inner puzzle consists of a map of the Mediterranean, Norwegian, North, Greenland Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Many of the pieces include information about specific events at specific times. Coloured lines run through the puzzle showing the Vikings as they searched for new places to settle, while the white outline prominently shows the Trade route.
This puzzle comes complete with 102 pieces and is specifically aimed at older children, learning about the Viking Age.
Made in Norway from 100% recycled board.

  • Larsen use hundreds of specially made cutting tools to make their great range of fun and educational puzzles, many custom made for a specific puzzle

It is important for the youngest to have puzzles with pieces of different shapes, not the traditional puzzle pieces that most manufacturers offer. When we make the puzzles, we cut so deep that you can see the shapes of the pieces in the tray below. When playing with our puzzles, the children will look for pieces with the right shapes rather than looking at the picture.

Many of our puzzle pieces are shaped like animals and other figures. This makes the puzzles a bit easier for the children, and they find it fun to recognise the shapes.
