Board Gaming With Historians: Vikings

posted in: Videos | 0

In 2016 I produced the first two of what was intended to be an ongoing series for History Today in which historians would play board games and use that as a jumping-off point to talk around some of the key areas in their subject. It was intended as a fun and light-hearted way to approach what are often dry subjects. Unfortunately we were only able to produce two videos, but they generated a lot of buzz on social media and were quite effective in putting us in front of a new audience.

The idea for the series came from my colleague Rhys Griffiths, and I directed, edited and did the sound design and title sequence for the videos.
