In this Forest School session, we used our fire skills to create Viking bread. Using our knowledge from last time, we built fire lays and grew our fires by adding the right type of fuel and the right time in order to get it hot enough to bake bread. Meanwhile, half of the group made the bread using flour, water, a pinch of salt and oats. After tasting it, we decided we preferred it to the Ancient Egyptian flatbread we’d made earlier in the year and compared diets between them, as well as us, and why bread was an important food for Vikings of all positions in society.
