The Vikings expanded from their Scandinavian homelands to create an international network across four continents, where artistic, religious and political ideas met.

Their skill in shipbuilding and seafaring were central to their culture and success, and at the heart of this British Museum exhibition will be a 37-metre-long warship, which is the longest Viking ship ever discovered.

Several new discoveries, including part of a mass grave of Viking warriors, will be on display for the first time as well as personal objects, including jewellery, amulets and idols.

When: March 6 – June 22

Where: The British Museum, Great Russell St, London, WC1B 3DG
