Schoolchildren on the Wirral are being encouraged to find out more about their Viking heritage on a new website.
Wirral was once an independent Viking state
The site, which features educational videos as well as games, photographs and even Viking recipes, came from an idea from council chief Steve Maddox.
Mike McCartney, brother of Sir Paul, presents the video clips and local writer Brian McCann provides the voice of lead character Ingimund the Viking.
Wirral was once an independent Viking state with its parliament at Thingwall.
Steve Maddox said: "We're very proud of our Viking heritage here in Wirral. This website will really bring history to life for students.
"Although I have been credited with the original idea for the website, I'd like to congratulate all those colleagues and students who have worked so hard to make it a reality."
The Wirral's Viking history can be traced back to 902AD.
Local Viking expert Prof Steve Harding helped produce the website. He has also studied Merseysiders who still carry Viking DNA.
The website is part of Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council's website.
