Vikings! at the National Museum of Scotland

Published: 19th September 2012 11:38
Recent archaeological findings have shed new light on the Viking Age. The traditional view of the Vikings - stereotypes of raiders wearing horned helmets - has been replaced by a more complete and up-to-date picture.
The National Museum of Scotland is the only UK venue for this exhibition of more than 500 objects from the world-renowned collections of the National Historical Museum in Stockholm. Rarely seen outside Scandinavia, these artefacts provide intriguing insights into Viking mythology, rituals and craftsmanship.

Discover the power of mythology and the symbolism of Viking ships; gain fascinating insights into domestic life and death rituals; and view evidence of astonishing Viking workmanship in jewellery, metalwork, textiles and objects made from glass, bone and amber. See the earliest Scandinavian crucifix along with other striking silver pendants representing the pagan Norse Gods.

Adult £9/£7.50, Child £6 (under 12s free)
National Museum of Scotland
Chambers Street, Edinburgh

The exhibition is a joint venture between, and produced by, the National Historical Museum in Sweden and MuseumsPartner in Austria.
