Viking: Rediscover the legend

Norwich Castle Museum

9 February – 8 September 2019

n a major new exhibition, featuring star objects from the British Museum and Yorkshire Museum, Viking: Rediscover the Legend will offer a fresh perspective on how Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain.

Significant Anglo-Saxon and Viking treasure hoards discovered in Britain, including the Vale of York Viking Hoard, Cuerdale Hoard and the Bedale Hoard, will go on display together for the first time from May 2017. The exhibition will showcase some of the British Museum and Yorkshire Museum’s finest pieces from their collections of Viking material, with nearly 400 British Museum objects and over 200 Yorkshire Museum objects on display, as well as the jointly owned Vale of York Hoard. The exhibition will also feature ground-breaking research by archaeologists and new discoveries by metal-detectorists which will challenge our perceptions of what it means to be Viking.

The exhibition will open at the Yorkshire Museum and then tour to the University of Nottingham, The Atkinson, Southport, and Norwich Castle Museum, from May 2017 until September 2019.
