Stories of the Vikings Bundle


Stories of the Vikings is a charming little book, penned by Mary MacGregor, a prolific author of children’s history books in the early twentieth century. First published over one hundred years ago as part of a children’s history series from T. C & E. C. Jack, it regales its audience with the daring and exciting exploits of these fierce seafarers from so long ago. Though the Viking Age has long since died out it would perhaps do us well to remember how the history of these northmen is so entwined with our own, and the little stories contained within this book, written in a lively and engaging manner, will help us towards this understanding.

This new edition of Stories of the Vikings, brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive, has now received a little bit of a nip and a tuck, with careful edits bringing it up to date for students of the twenty-first century.

Intended for use within the realm of a Charlotte Mason education Stories of the Vikings is intended to be used over the course of one academic school year, alongside an additional history reader, such as Our Island Story, by H. E. Marshall. It has been arranged for effective use with Miss Mason’s principle of short lessons,—some chapters have therefore been split into parts and the readings spread across more than one lesson. Another unique facet to the new edition is the inclusion of narration breaks dividing the text, allowing parents and students to move easily through the text at a pace which is suitable to the abilities of the child.

As an aid to accompany the text, we highly recommend History Pictures for a Living Education: The Vikings, a compilation of photographs exclusively arranged for use alongside the book. Footnotes are littered throughout Stories of the Vikings, indicating when a picture is available to supplement the text.

History Pictures for a Living Education: The Vikings  is designed to enliven and enhance the quest for historical knowledge in the home schoolroom, featuring fifty photographs and illustrations of arms, relics, artefacts, historic sites, architecture, artistic representations of historic events, plans and maps, and portraits of eminent persons.

Intended primarily—but not exclusively—for home educators using the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education, History Pictures for a Living Education: The Vikings can be used by students of all ages and forms studying British History, and makes an excellent companion to history readers such as Stories of the Vikings, by Macgregor.

History Pictures for a Living Education is a unique series designed to bring history to life for students and young people studying the events of the past. Brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive these books are largely based off Black’s History Pictures, a series published by A. & C. Black in the early twentieth century. An edition of Black’s History Pictures was recommended as a suitable resource for young students of history by Miss Charlotte Mason of the Parents’ National Educational Union.

Printed on 200 gsm gloss paper, the book is spiral bound for ease of use, all pictures are clearly labelled, and most include captions to provide context and continuity throughout.
