Viking: Rediscover the Legend - Exhibition

Friday 24th November 2017 - Sunday 4th March 2018 
Venue: Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Viking: Rediscover the Legend is a collaboration between the British Museum and York Museums Trust and will feature nationally important Viking and Anglo Saxon artefacts, including recent finds, and will re-examine the influence of the Vikings in Britain.

To coincide with the exhibition, visitors will have a unique opportunity to learn more about the exciting heritage of the Vikings in the East Midlands through a University research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) called ‘Bringing Vikings Back to the East Midlands’.

It's a touring exhibition, with only four other venues however, visitors to The University of Nottingham Museum will get the additional benefit of learning about how Vikings shaped the East Midlands, through the research being done by Professor Jesch and her team.

Viking life in the East Midlands

The project will seek to highlight artefacts within the travelling exhibition that have Midlands’ connections.

An online gallery will be set up of Viking Age artefacts held at local museums so that people can see what is available to view in their area.

There will also be a an extensive Learning and Public Programme that will include public talks as well as a wide variety of interactive activities including tours, ancient craft, living history, storytelling and object handling that will provide the opportunity to learn about their hidden legacy, such as runes, poetry, domestic life, and other aspects of everyday Viking life in the East Midlands.
