Description :

The heart of the exhibition will be a 37-metre-long warship. Found in 1997, and dating to around 1025, it is the longest Viking ship ever discovered. Many other new discoveries, including part of a mass grave of Viking warriors, will be on display showing how our understanding of the Vikings is still being changed by new excavations and recent research. The exhibition will also present personal objects, including jewellery, amulets and idols. Several objects, including the  Vale of York Hoard, demonstrate the global reach of the Viking network of trade, plunder and power – a network that left a lasting legacy in countries from Ireland and the UK to Russia and Ukraine.
