Promotional video for the Viking exhibition now showing at The National Museum of Scotland

Opening today, stv news reports that, “An exhibition of more than 500 Viking objects will be shown in Scotland. The National Museum of Scotland is the only UK venue for Vikings!, a collection of artefacts which are rarely seen outside of Scandinavia. The jewellery, weapon fragments, carvings, precious metals and household items are from the collections of the Swedish History Museum in Stockholm. The objects, along with archaeological evidence, hands-on displays and innovative interpretation, show a different side to the Vikings. The term Viking refers to an activity rather than a group of people. Men would go “out on a Viking”, which could refer to both pillaging raids and peaceful trading expeditions.”

The exhibition runs until 12 May 2013. Details on The National Museum of Scotland website here.
