What did the Vikings do when they were at home? What kinds of food did medieval people eat? Answer these questions and many more with the help of faculty specializing in the history, literature, culture, and archaeology of the period. This camp will take a hands-on approach to learning about medieval life, so you'll be making art, eating medieval-style munchies, building catapults, and even participating in some live-action role play with a medieval fantasy club. As a bonus: you'll also learn how arts and humanities degrees can help you build professional careers in everything from the intelligence community to the financial industry.
This camp may appeal to: students interested in history, medieval literature and culture, languages, archaeology, or considering careers that require historical knowledge, an understanding of diversity in human culture, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and creativity.
