Viking book: research trip and character development
I was assigned to do illustrations for a educational book about Vikings and the Viking fortress Trelleborg, thats located just outside Slagelse.
Every summer Trelleborg hosts a Viking camp where people can live out their inner Viking in the historical surroundings. I had an additional trip to Trelleborg later on in the schools fall vacation, so I could check out costumes and how to fight with sword, scissor, axe, danes axe, lance, french lance, and mace.
