Viking: Rediscover the Legend
For the first time, two of the most significant and internationally recognised collections of Viking Age treasure in Britain have been brought together in a major new exhibition at Yorkshire Museum. Featuring some of the most exciting Anglo-Saxon and Viking discoveries ever made, the exhibition explores how the Vikings transformed life in Britain.
Star objects from the British Museum feature alongside the Yorkshire Museum’s world class collections and are interpreted in new ways to give a fresh perspective on how the Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain.
It also features ground-breaking research by archaeologists and new discoveries by metal-detectorists which challenge our perceptions of what it means to be Viking.
