Viking: Rediscover the Legend : Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Norwich
9 February to 8 September 2019
A major new partnership exhibition between the British Museum and York Museums Trust
Some of the most significant Anglian and Viking treasures ever discovered in Britain will go on display together at Norwich Castle.
Featuring star objects from the British Museum and Yorkshire Museum, Viking: Rediscover the Legend offers a fresh perspective on how Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain.
The exhibition includes the Anglian York Helmet, the most outstanding example of its type to survive, as well as the most significant Viking hoards ever found in the UK - the Vale of York Viking Hoard, Cuerdale Hoard and the Bedale Hoard.
These finds will be shown alongside highlights from Norwich Castle’s collections and will be interpreted in new ways to challenge our perceptions of what it means to be Viking.
