Longhouse LifestyleIt’s dinner time in the longhouse. The longhouse is lit with a central fire. There are long fur-lined benches along the sides of the thick turf walls. Lamps fueled with cod liver oil and cottongrass also add extra light to the family dinner. The family circles around eating a thick stew of carrots, potatoes, and wild game, dipping bread into the steaming bowl while sipping on buttermilk or mead. When you dress your little one in this fur-accented costume, you can be sure he’ll look right at home sipping from a bowl in a long-house. Who knows what other Viking skills he’ll pick up.
