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.
