Last summer, 1,400 years after the Vikings began their invasion of the Baltic region, Dr. Rebecca Hayes toured much of the land and many cities. A month after she came home, ten LLI members boarded a Viking ship (much larger than the original Viking ships) to tour many of the major ports and cities of the Baltic Sea. Dr. Hayes and a few of the LLI travelers will share the history and their photographs of some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This is a two-session presentation, and if time permits, you will learn how much gelato was consumed.
Dr. Rebecca Hayes is a full professor of history at Northern Virginia Community College, Manassas Campus. Her Ph.D. from Florida State University focused on early modern British history with minors in Medieval Europe, Classical Greece and Rome, as well as the Middle East. Dr. Hayes began her teaching career at Mississippi College in 2003 and moved to Northern Virginia in 2008. She is currently the honors chair for the Manassas campus and oversees that program. Dr. Hayes loves to travel and takes students abroad during spring break, believing that everyone should experience other cultures and get the chance to see history come alive. She has taught several classes for LLI.
