Sigurd and the Dragon | Virtual Reality

The Vikings had a rich and complex religion and mythology, with gods such as Thor, Loki and Odin, huge frost giants, magical dwarves, and talking animals. Some of these stories were carved into stone, to be remembered for hundreds of years. One such story is that of Sigurd and the Dragon, a story carved a thousand years ago into a stone cross in Halton, Lancashire.

The Sigurd and the Dragon VR Experience will take you back in time a thousand years to see the story on the Halton Cross, and to hear it told inside an authentic Viking longhouse. With a fire crackling away and lanterns illuminating the dark and smoky house, a Viking will reveal how Sigurd faced a dragon with his mighty sword Gram.

This virtual reality experience provides a perfect starting point for discussion, research, writing, drama and artwork.
