Storyboard Text

  • How am I ever going to get my homework done?
  • Hej. Goddag.
  • I'm collecting some eggs for breakfast.
  • It's hard work ploughing the fields
  • You grow a lot of vegetables.
  • According to Sam he was just sitting in his bedroom, thinking about his homework when it happened.
  • What are you doing?
  • We're collecting water to drink and to help make the beer.
  • Suddenly the magic key began to glow and Sam found himself transported 1500 years back into the time of the Anglo-Saxons, where he noticed a lot of people were speaking Danish.
  • I don't want to be killed and my fat made into a candle!
  • We don't often eat meat. We are mostly vegetarian. When we do eat meat we roast it on a fire. Last night we had a great feast in the chief's house.
  • I don't want to lose my coat for wool. It will be freezing in the winter.
  • Around the houses he could see small fields that had been ploughed by oxen. Carrots, parsnips, peas, oats, barley and wheat were growing. There were lots of leeks and the carrots were small and purple.
  • That was weird!
  • In between the village and the fields was a river. Besides the river girls were chatting and laughing as they collected the water.
  • Above the village there were hills, where cows and sheep were kept. He wandered over to talk to one of the children looking after the animals.
  • Sam came to with a start in his bedroom. Had it been a dream? He sniffed his shoes. No! It had not.
