Vikings - Religion
One important part of KS2 history is Viking, or Norse, culture and this is the third of four quizzes on the subject. Specifically it looks at Norse mythology, religion and gods prior to the Vikings' conversion to Christianity.
The religion of the Vikings was a pagan belief in the gods and goddesses of Norse mythology. Their afterlife was composed of various places to go, such as Valhalla if you died bravely in battle, but the most common place to go was hel. The Viking Hel was not a place of torment like the Christian Hell - but it was a place of cold and darkness. The Vikings had many stories about the antics of their gods and some of our days of the week are named after them - Thursday after Thor for example or Friday after the goddess Frigg.
