UW-Green Bay Viking House is a History Tour Road Rally stop

Brown County is celebrating its 200th anniversary. The Brown County Historical Society is celebrating by organizing a History Tour Road Rally. The History Tour Road Rally kicks off at Voyageur Park in De Pere at 9 a.m., Saturday, August 25, 2018. The idea is to get residents to places where they normally would not stop. Heidi Sherman, chair of History at UW-Green Bay explains that the tour is meant to be a fun excursion for people who might normally think “Eh, history is kind of boring.” One of the stops is the Viking House at UW-Green Bay, which helps visitors to experience the Viking age, hands-on. Elspeth Christianson, one of theĀ donors and builders of the Viking House, says he first built it for personalĀ use to experiment with cooking and weaving, but wanted to share the experience with others as well.
