The BP Exhibition: Vikings Life And Legend at the British Museum



The British Museum comes under invasion from the dreaded Vikings as they stage the first exhibition about the warriors in over 30 years.

Boasting a number of new archaeological discoveries and objects – many never having been seen before – visitors should prepare themselves for a fresh take on the warfare and warrior identity at the centre of what it meant to be a Viking. Alongside the treasures that illustrate their raider and trader lifestyles, the centrepiece and highlight of the exhibition is a 37-metre-long Viking warship, the longest ever found and previously unseen in the UK.

With a wealth of new information to be absorbed and a wide range of memorable discoveries to be viewed, this is one exhibition that has the power to completely change our understanding of the fascinating Viking warriors.
