Lives Beyond the Legends
May 16 to November 11, 2014
The first North American stop for this exhibition, Vikings challenges our commonly held beliefs as they emerge in a fascinating new light. Insights into Viking domestic life, death rituals, the significance of their craft, the power of mythology and the symbolism of their ships are explored in this interactive exhibition. See hundreds of rare artifacts – jewellery, swords, axes, and clothing – many of which have never been shown outside Scandinavia.
