The exhibition is the first on the Viking world at the British Museum for over 30 years. Audiences will discover new ideas about the Vikings - people who were not just deadly raiders and pillagers but also peaceful traders, who sailed the seas of the world and whose thought- world was full of living gods of poetry and war.
