As you may already know, this year is the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf and there are lots of events and activities planned. One of these activities is a project competition that you have been invited to enter and you will have received a flyer from your class teacher.
This project is to be completed at home, but to help you with your research there is a list of websites below. Remember that the Internet is a great tool for research, but you must ask a grown up in charge before you go online. Some websites contain adds and links that can move you off a good source for your research, so check with an adult before changing sites.
http://www.askaboutireland.ie/reading-room/environment-geography/island-life/scattery-island2/brian-boru/ (This website gives a history of Brian Boru’s life)
http://www.heritage-history.com/www/heritage.php?Dir=characters&FileName=boru.php (This site gives a nice short history)
http://www.scoilnet.ie/Vikings_Themepage.shtm (This site gives lots of information about the Vikings)
Don’t forget to check out your local library and the National History Museum.
Best of luck!
