A Closer Look at the Vikings: Curator’s Edition

Plan Your Visit

Gunnar Andersson, The Swedish History Museum

What do we really know about the Vikings? Knowledge of the Vikings, their societies and their worlds has changed as a result of recent archaeological discoveries. However, these new findings were mostly confined to academic reports and conference papers. In 2011, The Swedish History Museum decided it was time to change this. The challenge was to produce an exhibition that combined stories visitors could recognize, while dispelling old stereotypes and presenting new research or new ways of interpreting old results.
